2019 Dominican Republic Trip

Serving and Growing in the Dominican Republic

Since 2010, BTI360 has been partnering with Compassion International to help free children in the Dominican Republic from poverty. BTI360 sponsors 26 children in the D.R., helping ensure they get the care, nutrition, and education they need to thrive.

In 2013 we took our first trip to the Dominican Republic to visit our sponsor kids. It was such a success, that it has become an annual tradition. We’ve formed close friendships and had a small part in strengthening the families and communities there.

Last month, seven BTI360 teammates took a 5-day trip to visit Santo Domingo and San Cristobal, the two cities where we’ve focused our efforts.

Trip Highlights

  • New teammates meeting their sponsor kids for the first time
  • Visiting the child survival program
  • Home visits with sponsor families
  • Serving meals to children in the Compassion centers
  • Visiting the water purification center BTI360 sponsored in San Cristobal
  • Playing softball with D.R. youth
  • Taking sponsor children, parents, and tutors to the zoo
  • Hearing stories of adults who have graduated from the sponsorship program
  • Eating great meals, laughing a lot, and growing closer as a team
