Last Monday, April 16, InteRDom’s 2018 spring program got underway in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, with the presentation of the two new interns that will participate in the current program by Manuel Medrano, GFDD’s program coordinator.
GFDD, along with its sister organization Funglode, headed the opening this past April 1th of the New York Model United Nations Conference for Latin America and the Caribbean (NYMUNLAC2018) organized by Global Muners and ANURD. The opening ceremony was held at the Grand Hotel Hyatt in New York City, with the participation of hundreds of students from all over the world.
Over the weekend, the Summer 2017 InteRDom interns took part in the third and final cultural activity of their program. The interns had the opportunity on Saturday, August 5th to enjoy a full day in the municipality of Baní, where they visited a number of truly picturesque landscapes. Accompanied by InteRDom staff, the interns departed the headquarters of Funglode at 10:00 a.m. and were told of the significance of the locations they were about to visit on the way. The day brought adventure in the form of climbing the Dunes of Baní, historical lessons in visiting the Salt Mines of Baní, and later, rest and relaxation during a brief swim in the Playa Salinas.
