The D2C Seva volunteer trips to Haiti are a special way for people to create a more personal connection with the D2C children and the community of Cayes Jacmel.
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.
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.
The Seva Volunteer Trips take place two to three times a year, typically in April, July, and November (the next trip is July 8-14, 2018). School groups are encouraged and welcomed. If you are interested in participating in a Seva trip or would like more information, please contact D2C.
