MAKE THE CONNECTION .
The D2C Seva volunteer trips to Haiti are a special way for people to create a more personal connection with D2C's work and the community of Cayes Jacmel, Haiti.
Seva is a Sanskrit word that means selfless service. This unique trip is part community service, part cultural immersion and part travel adventure. Open to all ages, this is an opportunity to learn about another culture that is not often reported about, work specifically on behalf of vulnerable children, and travel to an area that has suffered incredible hardships but is vibrant with culture and beauty.
D2C welcomes volunteers of all ages to participate in a Seva Trip. We especially encourage family and high school school groups. Minors must be accompanied by adult chaperones. Please keep in mind that although beautiful, Haiti is a developing country that demands flexibility and a sense of adventure from its visitors.
The Seva Volunteer Trips take place two times a year, typically in the spring and fall. Dates will depend on the safety conditions in Haiti as well as access to transportation on the ground. Keeping volunteers safe is a priority and all precautions are made.
As a nonprofit organization supporting our Family Home and community projects, participants are asked to fundraise a minimum of $1000 ($500 for kids under 18) as part of their participation. All money raised is tax deductible and used to support direct operational costs of D2C’s projects.
Upon reserving your spot on a Seva Trip, you will receive a fundraising manual that will help generate ideas on how to easily reach the minimum goal. The trip cost per person is $650. This covers all ground expenses in Haiti; you will be responsible for your roundtrip ticket to Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
