We are a small team of passionate dreamers working hard to create sustainable impact within Batey communities. Each with a different cultural background and living in different US States, we pull together as volunteers to make BRP the organization it is today.
Join one of our venture teams and travel with us to our Bateyes. This experience will change you. Change the way you see poverty. Change the way you think and how you can have an impact upon a life. Maybe even change how you live your life. All while you change the lives of others for the better. BRP venture trips are changing the way volunteering is done, making it a safe, exciting adventure of a lifetime for people of all ages and walks of life.
Born over 80 years ago, the Bateyes were formed of Haitian workers who worked mainly in the duties of the sugar fields as well as within the sugar factories. Today the Bateyes have become large communities of Dominicans and Haitians, which have slowly merged into the Dominican society.
