Mission Possible is a Gonzaga Law School student-run organization that focuses on helping those who are less fortunate, abroad and at home. Each Spring Break, 15 student members from Gonzaga Law complete service projects in poverty-stricken communities.
Over the past four years, Mission Possible has worked in rural Lepaera, Honduras where they have had the opportunity to engage with local school children and work to clean and paint several local schools, making each a healthy and safe place to learn and receive services. The group has collected school supplies from the Gonzaga Law community and delivered the hundreds of backpacks filled with school supplies to local children.
This March, the group will return to the Dominican Republic for the first time since 2005 and partner with a non-profit called the Sister Island Project. The students plan to serve the community of Altagracia located in the Yabacao region, about two hours north of the Dominican capital, Santo Domingo. This year’s goals include helping a local village with a reforestation project and the donation of much needed health and school supplies to the community. They will also focus on women’s issues and facilitating more employment opportunities in Altagracia.
