This Summer, BTC is hosting two trips in the month of May that will travel to the community of Caimonial, a small community located on the Western side of the Dominican Republic in the province of San Juan. Stricken by poverty and on far from the tourist resorts, Caimonial suffers from malnutrition, deforestation and poor quality academic opportunities.

May 1-8, 2019                    hosted by the University of Toronto

May 11-18, 2019                hosted by Marietta College
