After centuries of dictatorships and war, the Dominican Republic has enjoyed several decades of peace and economic growth. However, much of that growth has been enjoyed by only a small percentage of the population. Ministry opportunities abound. In Santiago, you’ll serve hard-to-reach communities on the outskirts of the second largest city in the country. You’ll serve at ministry sites located in some of the poorest communities in the country. SI’s newest Ministry Base is just a few minutes from the Santiago International Airport. The newly renovated base is the perfect place to relax after a day working at your site. Your excursion is a beautiful and relaxing day at the beach.
