Phodographers from Univ. Maryland near Sattlelite, Dominican Republic March 2011
Once again Dog Meets World was a huge success. A group from the University of Maryland Hillel did a spring break service project. The leader Marissa Neuman said “the students adored the project. We took pictures of over 100 students at a school we worked with. About 75 % of the children didn’t have photos of themselves. We also took some in the town where we were living, Sattlelite.”
Something so incredible about having your own photograph….but it’s also priceless to share with your friends to multiple the joy. Thank you to new phoDOGraphers Aliza, Ben, Allana, Scott, Jona, Jacob, Kara, Samantha and Allison for being photo diplomats!!
Best Foto of the Week!
Praise for DMW

"Dog Meets World went over fabulously in my village. It is a perfect option for Peace Corps volunteers like myself. I like the Foto dog mascot, kids like it, and it is a representation of the peace and the ideas of the project."
