Bringing basic sanitation to a Haitian Slum in the Dominican Republic.

According to the World Health Organization, 1.6 million deaths of children per year can be attributed to unsafe water, poor sanitation, and lack of hygiene. This summer, a group of high school students and adults will go to the Dominican Republic to build latrines and provide clean living education to a Haitian slum in a city named Barahona, Dominican Republic. Through a partnership with the community leaders, we will build latrines, educate the community on proper use and upkeep, as well as provide soap through a local organization who recycles soap donated by hotel chains across the United States.
