CarmenCandles are handcrafted right here in the Dominican Republic using quality wax and wicks and tastefully scented to take you back to the islands! Each candle contains treasures from the beaches of Boca de Yuma....colourful natural sea-glass, coral and polished stones, all harvested by local kids who are learning that there is more to life than shining shoes.

Each child is compensated for their efforts based on desire...not amount collected, and they are learning about business and social interaction.

Carmen personally constructs each candle, one at a time, taking the time and care to ensure each candle is of the highest quality.

Carmen has an interest in the future of Dominican youth and a portion of each candle sold goes directly to the schools in both Bavaro and Boca de Yuma, to purchase needed supplies and services.

You may order your candle in advance of your tour, to avoid disappointment, as supply is limited weekly.

Please contact Carmen with the the form submission located on the upper left side of this page. She will need to know the resort you will be at and the dates you will be here!
