Do Good. See The World.
We seek to create dozens of free pediatric therapy clinics offering exceptional speech, occupational, physical, and ABA therapy services across Central America, South America, and the Caribbean. Many people told us that is far-fetched and not feasible - that is exactly why it excites us and worth achieving. Our brothers and sisters deserve to have the same access and opportunities to receive therapies - that fact that it will be challenging is irrelevant.
- We believe ALL children should have access to life-changing pediatric therapies.
- We believe in partnering with local communities
- We believe in the long term and doing what is sustainable
- We believe in helping to build local capacity

"My trip to the Dominican Republic was the highlight of my summer! We learned, laughed, and discovered a whole new world. The relationships forged on my trip transformed me and will last a lifetime. All I can think about is my next service trip."
"My time in the Dominican Republic was magical. It was amazing to build relationships with the people and experience such a rich culture. I would not trade my time there for anything. It left a lasting impression on me and changed the way I view this incredible planet!"
"Graduate school admissions departments are looking for unique and relevant experiences now more than ever. The competition to get into a top-tier graduate school was humbling and terrifying. Participating in an international service trip is far and away one of the most compelling ways you can stand out from the crowd and gain acceptance into the graduate program of your choice."
