  • Joining an SOP Volunteer in Mission team to build ovens in the Dominican Republic is a joy-filled, faith-strengthening, mind-expanding experience.
  • Costs, including airfare from the Dakotas, average $2,000 and include all in-country expenses: food, lodging, transportation.
  • Winter, Summer, and Fall dates announced 60-90 days prior to travel.
  • Prayerfully consider and financially plan your participation, then add name to call list.

Work teams at our Zeeland, ND, workshop fabricate the auxiliary reflectors in a unique metal fabrication workshop. These units significantly boost the performance of our high-quality solar ovens. Want to get involved?

Whether it's cutting wood pieces for the ovens, performing a variety of light manufacturing operations, or packaging solar oven components for shipment to the Dominican Republic, you can be part of the action at our Volga, SD, workshop.

No one tells the story of Solar Oven Partners like someone who's actually witnessed the joy of people in developing countries taking their solar ovens home. Let our United Methodist Volunteers In Mission (UMVIM) share their heart-warming experiences with your congregation or organization.
