Where We Work

San Pablo, Dominican Republic

One of the poorest areas in the country of the Dominican Republic, Villa González (and specifically the refugee community of San Pablo) is home to more than 330 families. This community was established by the Dominican government several years ago after several families were displaced from their homes during Hurricane David. The average HOUSEHOLD income is $100-$150 US per month and each household is estimated at 6-8 people. We estimate that there are between 300-400 children (under age 18) living in the community. Drug use and prostitution are prevalent.

There is no clean water in the area and electricity is sporadic with only about 2-4 hours of power per day. There are no schools or medical services in the area. The closest public school is a dangerous 30-minute walk on a busy freeway (watch the video). The closest doctor or hospital is a 25-minute drive (and most people do not have cars or transportation).

Project Mañana has been working in the community of San Pablo since October 2012 and currently provides a nutritious meal to 254 children each day through our Nutrition Project (as more people sponsor a child, we will open space for more children). In addition, Project Mañana has distributed 594 water purification systems throughout the Dominican Republic; providing 32,521,500 gallons of clean water each year through our Clean Water Project.

In August 2014, Project Mañana opened the very first school in San Pablo and is providing a solid education through our Education Project to 105 children.

Project Mañana also hosts sports outreach programs, children ministry (Vacation Bible School camps), sexual purity and education groups for adolescents/teenagers (boys and girls), and is working one-on-one with several families to help them break the cycle of poverty. Biannually, we host medical clinics with American doctors, dentists, and medical professionals; which provide free services to the community.

Ciudad de Dios, Dominican Republic

Also one of the poorest areas in the country of the Dominican Republic, Cienfuegos (and specifically the 'squatter' community of Ciudad de Dios) is home to more than 500 families. This community was established when families began squatting on land owned by the Dominican government. The average HOUSEHOLD income is $100-$150 US per month and each household is estimated at 6-8 people. We estimate that there are between 400-500 children (under age 18) living in the community. Drug use and prostitution are prevalent.

There is no clean water in the area and electricity is sporadic with only about 2-4 hours of power per day. There are no schools or medical services in the area. The closest public school is a 30-minute walk along a dangerous canal. The closest doctor or hospital is a 25-minute drive (and most people do not have cars or transportation).

Project Mañana has been working in the community of Ciudad de Dios since June 2016; where our primary focus has been to build relationships and distribute clean water filters through our Clean Water Project. Throughout the Dominican Republic, Project Mañana has distributed 594 water purification systems; providing 32,521,500 gallons of clean water each year through our Clean Water Project.

In this community, Project Mañana also hosts children ministry (Vacation Bible School camps) and is working to start small groups focused on sexual purity and education for adolescents/teenagers to help families break the cycle of poverty. Biannually, we host medical clinics with American doctors, dentists, and medical professionals; which provide free services to the community.
