For the Joy of Sharing



For the Joy of Sharing

Every year Solidarité Jeunesse sends about 30 young adults to the Dominican Republic to help the less fortunate. The goal is to expose the participants to the realities of poverty so that they can become responsible citizens and work towards a more just and humane world.

Since 1984, Solidarité Jeunesse has been working closely with Padre Luis Quinn’s Association for the development of San José de Ocoa (Spanish only). This co-op works on improving the quality of life of the poor living in the mountainous region of San José de Ocoa and the surrounding area. Over the years, many houses, community centers, schools, roads and aqueducts systems have been built thanks to this collective effort.
