Our decisions about dress code are quite simple—we are guests in our host communities, not tourists. We work with elders, nonprofit leaders in their professional settings, indigenous communities that abide by conservative attire, members of religious and spiritual groups, and others whose cultural and professional beliefs abide by conservative and appropriate attire.
Personal affections, a passion for purpose and mutual adorations are at the heart of the DR experience. The love stories are diverse and enduring.

Gussie Love was a devoted member of the VISIONS community for the last decade. He passed away yesterday, one month shy of his 18th birthday. When adopting Gussie from the local Humane Society ten years ago, his paperwork identified him as a potential menace. I am so grateful that he was put up for adoption and became part of my life.
VISIONS has a long history of female leadership. We also honor the many women who have directed our programs, female project partners who make a difference in their communities, and thousands of girls who have attended programs and worked hard while honing leadership skills.
VISIONS has always run tech-free summer programs for high school students (no cell phones or other electronic gadgets other than 30 minutes set aside once a week to connect with home).
