Review for Service for Peace Inc, Bridgeport, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I went on the SFP 2 week trip to La Guamita, Dominican. Our mission there was to build a school classroom for the community and, more importantly, build relationships with the people of La Guamita. This trip was unique because the volunteers were made up of approximately half American and half Domincan volunteers. This was such an amazing experience to get to know Dominican volunteers as well as Dominican community memebers. Although there was a bit of a language barrier, I felt I build strong bonds with all of the volunteers. Service for Peace really works in conjunction with communities in order to understand their needs and really make an impact with projects. The work itself was very physical but we were often building along side of community volunteers so I know that the project was meaningful and helpful to the community. Service for Peace is so unique that it assesses the community's needs and is in close contact with communities before, during, and after projects have been completed. I would absolutely recommend this experience for anyone who is eager to help those less fortunate and want to be really involved in the community that they are helping!
