BLUE Missions Service Trip
Firme de Castillo, Dominican Republic
BLUE Missions is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing clean running water and proper sanitation systems to underprivileged communities. They focus on "Building Love, Uniting Everyone," and through volunteering, I did the same.
We dug trenches and connected pipes to the aquifer. On Women's Empowerment Day, we conducted a seminar for the women, reminding them of their power to instigate change despite living within a patriarchal town.
I am forever grateful to both the community and BLUE Missions for accepting me with open arms, and in the process, reaffirming to me the importance of culture, teamwork, and family.
