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


This past month as been HUGE for Project Mañana -- including FIVE new child sponsors in the last week!

With more and more children receiving sponsorship and an American partner, we are seeing international relationships form and develop. These relationships are key to motivating and encouraging these precious Dominican children to succeed in school and life.

Currently, there are only 10 children who need sponsors from the SECOND group. Once these 10 children are sponsored, Project Mañana will (for the third time!!) open space for an ADDITIONAL 50 CHILDREN to receive a private education and daily nutritious meals!!

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.

Working Together Today For A Better Tomorrow™


Brian Berman, Founder & President


Project Mañana's Focuses on Interactive Learning

The educational system in the Dominican Republic is far behind that of the United States. Many students (especially in public schools) are not given the opportunity to explore and learn in an environment that fosters creative thinking and development.

At Project Mañana's private school, we place focus and a high level of importance on offering each student various forms of education, using best practices learned from ongoing teacher training programs and professional educators.

The photos below show students learning about shapes, volume, mass, and space. Each child was given a piece of paper with drawings of various shapes, along with colored tissue paper. The teacher explained the basic concepts of shapes, volume, mass, and space by allowing the children to roll the tissue paper into balls and glue it inside the drawings.

This simple, but highly effective, teaching tool proved to be a hit with the students!

Students Learn the Importance of Physical Health

In conjunction with the importance to offer creative classroom lessons, Project Mañana is committed to teaching students about the importance of physical health. This is especially important in the Dominican Republic as obesity, diabetes, and heart disease run ramped -- and, there are more-and-more children affected each year.

A couple times each week, all Project Mañana students are required to participate in an age-appropriate organized Physical Education class. During the class, students learn about proper stretching, cardiovascular exercise, strength/muscle training, and endurance. Often, students participate in an organize sport; which is rotated each month.

Project Mañana's Annual Report

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.

Please Help. Sponsor A Child TODAY!

 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.
