My friend told me about Dove Missions after she went. I teach many Dominican children in the US so I was very interested. It was an even better experience than I imagined! Going to the barrio was eye-opening. I imagined how it would be, but it was even more heartbreaking. What I didn't expect was the friendliness and happiness of the people. They welcomed us into their homes and were so kind. Next, we went to the school. We did an English lesson on fruits and vegetables and then helped them plant a rooftop garden. My 13 year old daughter and I did crafts with the girls and my husband played basketball with the boys. It was so fun! When it was time to leave, every child gave us hugs. This was the most amazing experience in my life. I know my daughter will remember it forever and it also gave her a new appreciation of what she has. Every person should go to Dove Missions for a 1/2 day or a full day!
We couldn't agree more! We think everyone should visit with our kiddos for at least a half or a full day :) We're so grateful for you, and we look forward to seeing you next time!
