Thank you everyone who recently became sustaining donors by pledging a monthly gift to Comunidad Connect. Doing so provides critical resources that allow us to reach isolated communities in Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic.

We are halfway to our goal of $4,000 a month from sustaining donors. This amount covers our ongoing programs that address food security, special needs patient care, maternal and pediatric consultations, preventive health services, and youth development.

Sustaining donors drive us farther, reaching the people that need our help the most. And although you are not there in person, you make a world of difference with your generous gifts. Thank you.

Garry and Sandy Tucker returned to Nicaragua in July 2019 with fellow birders Toni Westland and Kevin Lowry to develop a unique journey for socially-minded birders. Their photos are amazing and reflect the diverse flora and fauna of Nicaragua that nature-loving travelers long for. From monkeys and sloths, to birds and butterflies, Nicaragua has it all.

Contact us today for more information on our upcoming birding journeys and other service-learning trips to Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic.

“What did I get out of my time serving in the Dominican Republic? I learned to follow the wisdom of the people of Severet and value every little miracle in my life. There are many. I find new ones each day. The trick is to never stop looking.”

An article written by Kate Bell was recently featured in the Greensboro News and Record about her time on a service-learning journey to the Dominican Republic. Click here to read the full article.
