President's Message
Dear " . $Name .",

2012, Here We Come!

I can't believe that 2011 has already come and gone. For Project Mañana, 2011 was a HUGE year with lots of accomplishments, learnings, and a few challenges along the way.

As we look forward to 2012 and all the blessings we hope to share with the children of the Dominican Republic, I thought it would be appropriate to look back on 2011 and share some highlights.

While we are very proud of the success Project Mañana had in 2011, we wholly recognize that it couldn't have been possible without God's grace and the generosity of Project Mañana's sponsors.

On behalf of 115 Project Mañana children, their families, and community, THANK YOU for "Working Together Today for a Better Tomorrow!™"

Please visit Project Mañana's website for more information on how you can partner with Project Mañana; including child sponsorship.

Project Mañana Growth Update
From September 30, 2010 (when Project Mañana officially open its doors) to September 30, 2011, Project Mañana has seen an amazing 238% growth in its core programs.

Project Mañana, through the generous partnership of many sponsors across the United States, is now providing education, nutritious meals 5-days per week, and guidance to 115 children in the Dominican Republic! That's an astounding 238% growth in our first year of service!

The growth is a true testament to the hard work of the Dominican-based Project Mañana team and the many sponsors who have made it their mission to help provide a Better Tomorrow for the children of La Yaguita de Pastor, Dominican Republic!

There are MANY more children in the community (we estimate another 200-300 conservatively) who desperately need education and nutrition. As more and more sponsors join the Project Mañana team, we will expand the programs to as many children as we can.

 Project Mañana Needs Your Help!
Project Mañana is a non-profit 501(c)3 humanitarian organization dedicated to bettering the lives of impoverished children, their families and communities through nutrition, education, and guidance.

We achieve our goals through charitable donations and child sponsorship, which unites children in need with individual sponsors who wish to address the children's immediate and basic needs. Sponsorship gives poor children the tools and opportunities necessary for success by providing benefits and supporting programs for each child - primarily in the areas of education and nutrition.
