|The PKC HANDS Team will support the COCREF mission in providing Christ-centred education by raising funds to support continued physical improvements at one of their schools projects.|
We encourage you to take the time to build relationships with the people you will come into contact with while you are at the school, so that you can find out more about what God is doing in and through the lives of the principal, teachers and students who work and learn there. You will spend time serving alongside local construction workers to help complete the improvements required. Some of the tasks involved can include heavy work, including sifting sand, mixing cement, cement pouring and plastering walls. Please be assured that there will be work that everyone can do. Your participation is not based on knowledge of construction or skill with a hammer, but by your capacity to learn and serve, though we will strive to use your specific skills to the best of our ability.
With an attitude of learning and service and a listening heart, you will have an incredible opportunity to experience Dominican culture firsthand, and interact with and bless leaders, workers, teachers and students in the surrounding community.
|Participants arrive at Las Americas Airport in Santo Domingo and are transported to Camp Buenas Neuvas where they stay. Breakfast and supper are provided there, and lunch is provided at the work site. A host and translator are provided, however, participants with Spanish skills are an asset! |
EduDeo/PKC HANDS Teams consist of 8-12 men from across Canada over the age of 16 and will be 7 days in the Dominican Republic. Members will participate in multiple planning conference calls and will gather in a North American city for orientation prior to departure to the Dominican.
