      ¡Hola! Hello! 

      Welcome to Caritas Smile, Take A Trip Change A Life travel with purpose program.

      My travels in developing countries have taught me that generosity has the power to change the world and unite humanity. 

      It inspired me to create the charity, Caritas Smile. The word Caritas in Latin means love of humanity and in Spanish multiple tiny faces. The word smile is simply happiness:). One word in Spanish and another in English to symbolize the unity of two worlds.

       Caritas Smile, is a pro-mission, non-profit organization with a drive to empower communities in need while changing the lives of those who travel with us. Travelers in our signature program, Take a Trip Change A Life Program perform random acts of kindness (building homes and schools, and offering art and English programs) in orphanages, hospitals, and poverty stricken communities in developing countries, mainly in Dominican Republic. We not only improve lives, but engage with the community, go on hikes, swim in rivers and beaches, learn about the rich art, food, and music of the country. 

      Take a trip and change a life becuase the life that you change will be yours.
