A Message From Sarvenaz Chaichian

I will be joining Wine to Water in the Dominican Republic in January to help provide clean water to the people. I think that water is taken by granted by so many people around the world when there are thousands of people who don't even have access to it and if they do, it's not clean. I thought that this trip would be perfect for because not only will I be able to help those in need but I will be able to put the ceramic skills that I acquire to a better use by creating water filters for families in the DR. This is a costly trip for me so I would appreciate any help that I can receive. Help me help others! :)

Volunteer Service Trip: Dominican Republic

About This Campaign

About This Campaign
When you sign up as a volunteer in the Dominican Republic, you will get to make ceramic filters first-hand in the filter factory. We will teach you what materials go into the filter, show you how to mold them, fire them in the kiln, and then test them for purification. In addition to this, you will have the opportunity to get to know families that do not have access to clean water and personally distribute filters to their home. We also follow-up with past filter beneficiaries to hear how these filters have changed their lives. When giving the gift of clean water, life is instantly simplified and prioritized. It's an incredible experience.
