“Underserved communities don’t need a hand out, they need a hand up”
A way of serving communities while experiencing paradise.”

Who We Are

We are a 501c, Non-Profit Organization founded in 2017. Our first experience was Barbados, March 2018 with three members.

Who Are Our Experiences For?

These global experiences are primarily for those who are: teachers, social workers, corporate retreats, doctors, attorneys & philantropists, missionaries and all volunteers.

Current Flagship Experience: Barbados

This past Spring, The Serving in Paradise Foundation served in the Pine & Golden Rock Communities in Barbados. We will be returning to the same communities on

Feb. 28th – Mar. 5th, 2019.

“In my travels around the world, I found out that some of the most undereserved communities around the world, are in some of the most beautiful places in the world. Instead of simply enjoying their hospitality & landmarks of their lovely homeland, I decided that I would serve their community needs while experiencing their paradise.”




"Traveling with Black Girls Travel Too on their voluntourism trip was an eye opener. I knew I wanted to travel and do something different but wasn't sure exactly what I wanted until I saw a service trip on on their site. Thank you for creating an opportunity for me to do something way bigger than myself. I never imagined going to another country to voluteer. Not to mentioned, being able to work in communities alongside locals was undeniably the best part of the experience. So many cherished memories. Can't wait for your next volunteerism trip."

"I really didn't know what to expect as I had never heard of a trip like this before. But it is one of the best decisions I've made. And to be able to do it with women that look like me for people that look like me was the biggest reward. I will for sure travel with this company again."

After we serve alongside the community, we then take our members to enjoy the wonders of their destination.
