Review for Project Esperanza, Winchester, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I took 19 students from Virginia Tech to Puerto Plata over spring break 2016 for 9 days. Project Esperanza set up our lodging and meals and 4 project for my students to work on. As a business professor, my 4 student teams each had a local Haitian entrepreneur "client" to help with a business plan to get their business started.

My students had a tremendous experience. They got to know a number of Haitians and Dominicans, and learned first hand about severe poverty. They felt they had significant impact and had a lot of fun at the same time.

Caitlin is a saint, the " Mother Teresa" of Puerto Plata!!

Review for Project Esperanza, Winchester, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Caitlin is the Mother Teresa of Puerto Plata!! It is amazing what this small organization has done in a few years, while giving volunteers and college students a remarkable opportunity to serve and grow. We took 19 university students there over spring break 2016 and they had an extremely meaningful time, with many wanting to return.
