The Mahatma Gandhi Foundation provides opportunities to volunteers with a wide range of talents and experiences. They include the arts (drawing, painting, music, theater), the environment (education, activism, composting, gardening), education (literacy, assisting in an English immersion school, academic skills building and individual or group tutoring), girls and boys development (self-esteem, identity, sex education, social skills) and sports (teaching sports, promoting sports and physical fitness). Our Anacaona Library is the largest in the region and is the hub for most educational and personal development programs. Las Terrenas International School is a new not-for-profit program aimed at creating a generation of kids who are bilingual, multicultural, self-driven, academically well-prepared and critical thinkers. We have had over 230 volunteers from more than 33 countries since 2006 and in addition to individual volunteers we also host service trips and gap year students.
