2nd Annual Women's Conference & Workshops A Success!

As part of Project Mañana's holistic approach to helping restore families and create disciples, a large focus is placed on women -- who, often in the Dominican Republic, are the leaders of their household.

Each year a group of 40+ women from the impoverished area of San Pablo, Dominican Republic join a group of American women to select a topic and workbook to study over a 10-month period. This year's topic was "The Power In A Woman's Words."

Weekly, Project Mañana's Executive Director, Nebraska Berman, meets with the women in San Pablo. Together, they review the chapters of their workbook, do activities to reinforce the topic, and have an open discussion on issues and challenges they may be facing.

Meanwhile, a committed team of women in the United States, led by Julie Bogard, also study the same topic and workbook. They get together to discuss the material, prepare workshop modules, and activities. Then, the American women travel to the Dominican Republic for an annual conference where they meet their Dominican "sisters" for an encounter -- reinforcing what both groups learned throughout the year.

This year's conference was held over a three-day period (Feb. 26-28, 2016) in San Pablo where the women enjoyed worship, teachings, guest speakers, testimonies, discussion workshops, crafts, and a special celebration with drama and dance performances to conclude the event.

Project Mañana would like to extend a special thanks to:

  • Julie Bogard
  • Joy Ecker
  • Laura Weinberger
  • Rachael Peyton
  • Joan Peyton
  • Karen Vogsberger

Project Mañana Expands Its Prison Project -- AGAIN!

Project Mañana is proud to announce that it has again expanded its presences of the Institute for Authentic Manhood™ into another prison -- Dajabón Correctional Center; which has become the eighth (8th) maximum-security prison to be served by Project Mañana's Prison Project.

The city of Dajabón is located on the west side of the Dominican Republic, near the Haitian boarder, and is home to many Haitian immigrants. Adding this correctional center to the list of prisons where the Institute for Authentic Manhood™ serves allows an entirely new demographic to be reached.

With more than 2,776 inmate graduates, the Institute for Authentic Manhood™ is a highly-effective project that provides men with a first-hand experience of God's love. Throughout the various courses offered, men (many for the first time ever) are taught important virtues like love, humility and service; all with an emphasis on God, family, and community.

"In my 35+ years of ministry in the Dominican Republic, I have never seen a more successful or impactful program to really reach the hearts of men -- especially incarcerated men -- transforming them and impacting their families for generations to come," William Gomez, director of the Institute for Authentic Manhood™.

Also in February, the Institute for Authentic Manhood™ celebrated 48 inmate graduates in the La Vega Correctional Center, under the direction of Regional Supervisor, William Miller.

We continue to be excited to watch as these men develop a relationship with Christ and see other relationships built or restored with their families and those around them.

If you would like to help change the hearts of inmate men, please visit our website to learn how you can help.
