Nautique Cares - Dominican Republic!
Nautique Team One in the Dominican Republic
Nautique Team Two in the Dominican Republic
Service to others has become an important part of our culture at Nautique. Our team enjoys the opportunity to help others and many on our team proved it once again last week.
Two different groups of Nautique employees traveled to Santiago, Dominican Republic, on DC-3’s, making stops in the Bahamas and Haiti, on their way to make life better for people they had never met.
Nautique Team One landed on Saturday and immediately went to work refurbishing a school for needy children. The school is in a neighborhood near the Cienfuegos landfill where the residents survive by scrounging for things they can use (including food) or sell. The Nautique team built desks, benches, chalkboards and gave the school facility a coat of paint. We were very happy to serve these students and help give them an opportunity for a better future.
Nautique Team One also had a unique cultural experience. We were able to attend a mixed Haitian and Dominican Church where three languages were spoken during the service!
Team Two helped finished out a new building for a needy Dominican Church. Team Two also had the opportunity to help a Dominican family by putting a roof on their house (the prior roof only covered about two-thirds of their home) and build them a front door (they didn’t have one before). It was a wonderful experience to hear the father of this home talk about how loved his family felt to be served by our team and how his family would never forget us!
Both teams also brought school supplies down for children and we were thrilled to see the look on the kids’ faces as we handed them full backpacks!
Over the last few years the Nautique team has also served others in Mexico, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda, the Apache Reservation and of course at home in Central Florida. Later this year another group of employees will be traveling to India. Nautique has anAMAZING team who truly want to help others and play a small part in making the world a better place.
