Blue Missions brings clean water and sanitation to rural villages in the Dominican Republic through the construction of gravity driven aqueduct systems and latrines. Volunteers live and work alongside local community members as they learn to glue pipe, mix cement, and build structures to complete projects. Our service trips open the eyes of young people to the reality of water poverty and call them to become true global citizens.
We have built over 22 water systems in the Dominican Republic, and as we grow we’re bringing clean water to more towns every year. Communities take ownership of the projects through local leadership in the form of a committee. Members ensure the protection of the water system so it can provide for many generations into the future. After the days work goals are met, we celebrate and bond with the community, holding events for the local kids and women.
