President's Message
" . $Name .",


July 4th is one of my favorite holidays. Apart from having a BBQ and watching the fireworks, I appreciate gathering with family and friends to remember those who have fought so hard for our freedom.

I often get teary-eyed when watching the fireworks, as I think about all the people (and children) in the Dominican Republic who so deserve to have the same opportunities as we do.

Well, we may not change the world...but, with your help, Project Mañana will continue to change as many individual worlds as possible. I am so energized at the progress that we have made to date in La Yaguita de Pastor, Dominican Republic.

Thanks to dedicated partners and child sponsors, we have launched life-changing programs for the children and their families. WAY TO GO!!

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

Project Mañana Seeks International Project Coordinator
Within Project Mañana's short life of nine months, the organization has grown rapidly. We knew from the start that many people shared the same vision and that Project Mañana would be a success -- however, we didn't think it would come this fast!

To keep up with steady growth in the Dominican Republic, Project Mañana is looking to expand our team -- and fill a key international position.

Project Mañana is actively seeking to hire a full-time International Project Coordinator. This position will be based in the Dominican Republic, with a minimum of six months each year on the island.

The perfect candidate will have the following characteristics:
  • Excellent project and time management skills
  • Excellent written and verbal skills
  • Be self-motivated
  • Have strong leadership skills
  • Poses a high level of flexibility and patience
  • Have a huge heart for others
  • Must be over 18 years of age
Other helpful skills would include, but are not required:
  • Speak Spanish
  • Have management experience
  • Have mission experience
  • Have experience with international travel
This position will report directly to the Executive Director, and will assist the President on occasion. Fundraising and external support will be required, however Project Mañana will provide housing and a small stipend -- as well as help with fundraising efforts.

If you, or someone you know, is interested in applying for the International Project Coordinator position, please contact Project Mañana at info@projectmanana.org.

Project Mañana Prepares Teachers For Next School Year
As part of Project Mañana's commitment to providing the best possible private education for its students, we are very pleased announce that Project Mañana will be hosting a two-day teacher training seminar.

Ana Miladys Garcia, a licensed and certified school administrator, has volunteered her time and expertise as the special guest trainer for the seminars.

Garcia has a superior reputation, and has worked as a daycare director, teacher, and currently works as a school administrator in Santiago, Dominican Republic.

"When I heard about what Project Mañana is doing for the children of La Yaguita de Pastor, I wanted to make myself fully available," said Garcia.

She continued with, "it just makes sense. If we all use our talents to help others, especially children, we can help make this world a stronger, happier place."

Several manuals have been assembled (pictured to the right) with more than 50 pages of training materials. Each manual covers a wide variety of topics including: proper classroom etiquette and discipline, educational growth, developmental techniques, and suggestions for a positive and healthy learning environment.

"I couldn't think of a better person to help train our teachers. Ana has children of her own and has been working within the Dominican school system for more than 14 years," said Nebraska Berman, Project Mañana's Executive Director.

Project Niños Sponsorship Update
Project Mañana officially opened its doors on September 30, 2010 and launched the child sponsorship program in mid October 2010. In just under eight months, Project Mañana is excited (and very honored) to report that 68 percent of the children have been sponsored!

As of today, there are only 7 children in need of sponsorship. Once these children are sponsored, Project Mañana will be able to open the program to additional children who are desperately waiting for help.

By design, 100% of all sponsorship funds goes directly to the program. Project Mañana does not use any funds for administrative fees, travel, or salaries. When you sponsor a child, you'll have the peace-of-mind knowing that your money is managed with the utmost integrity to provide poor children with:

> Education - Private schooling, uniforms, supplies, teachers, & classrooms.
> Nutrition - A nutritious meal & Multi-Vitamin 5 days per week.
> Guidance - Partnership with a trained adult mentor.

Sponsorship starts at just $30 per month (that's less than $1 per day).
