Aldeas de Paz

Gründungsjahr: 2001

ABOUT US: Aldeas de Paz is a sustainable and transparent grass-roots NGO based in Santa Barbara de Samaná and Las Terrenas, Dominican Republic. We are independent from political, religious or business interests and maintain independence by completely funding and operating our programs with the practical and monetary contributions of volunteers and interns.

OUR PURPOSE: We are a youth orientated organization with the purpose of educating, mentoring, inspiring and empowering young people. We aim to develop their potentials and help them to create opportunities for them and their community through our educational programs and recreational activities. We promote children rights and equal opportunities for all.

OUR MISSION: We promote a Culture of Peace through enriching cross-cultural exchange for people of all cultural backgrounds and nationalities and we practice voluntary community service where we provide additional opportunities in education, sports, health care and skill training. We assist our beneficiaries in developing their potential and improving their own lives.

OUR VISION: Offering volunteers and interns the great opportunity to work side by side with locals, learn new skills, study Spanish and immerse themselves in the Latin and Caribbean culture. We share the values of peace, justice and tolerance, fundamentally focusing on the preservation of cultural values and the empowerment of young people while valuing local knowledge and working with cultural sensitivity. Our volunteer opportunities are truly the microcosm of a world where people join together giving priority to improving life for humanity and promoting a Culture of Peace as a practical way to both prevent and resolve conflict.

INTERNSHIP: In addition to the volunteer programs we also offer internship placements. Interns typically come for 6 weeks to 12 months and apply well in advance to inform us of their internship’s conditions and the requirements of their university or academic adviser. We are very happy to get in contact with academic institutions and to provide all materials and references necessary for interns to receive course credit for their volunteer work. Certificates are also provided to all interns upon successful completion of their internships. This communication is conducted in the specific manner agreed upon once the intern applies for the position.

VOLUNTEERING: Volunteering is a great way to experience another culture, make new friends and learn new skills. The beauty in volunteering lies in the fact that you are not simply passing through as a tourist. You are interacting with the community, building relationships and making a positive impact. It is an experience that may change your life! Volunteers are the driving force of our charity work, both through their volunteering and through their financial contributions. We have various programs currently under way and run by volunteers, as well as the long-term expectation of opening a multi- facetted Attention Center in Samana. We encourage volunteers to form schedules which work for them, and to work in any combination of programs. Volunteers decide how many hours they want to work. We recommend a minimum of 4 hours daily for 4 days a week. However, volunteers & interns may work as many days/hours as they wish. We emphasize that we focus on quality and not on quantity! The volunteer must cover all travel costs.
