News From Project Mañana!
Team of 32 visits the Dominican Republic from Sister School
CCS Team
Cincinnati Christian School team

Project Mañana was honored to host a team of 32 students and teachers from Cincinnati Christian School (CCS) over spring break.

This team was very special, as CCS has officially been named as Project Mañana's sister school in the United States. Together the two schools are teaching their students about international culture, service, and giving.

During their 8-day mission trip, student and teachers from CCS joined Project Mañana's in-country team to serve the students of Project Mañana's private school in San Pablo, Dominican Republic. They also did a lot of community outreach, built relationships, helped with the construction projects, hosted children's activities, and distributed clean water filters throughout the community.

Thanks to the CCS team, Project Mañana is happy to report the following:

  • Construction on the new school building was advanced
  • A vegetable garden & walkway were installed at Project Mañana's retreat center
  • 89+ students participated in workshops, including: robotics, English, crafts, & sports
  • 35 families received clean water filtration systems
  • 150+ children learned bible stories through drama & crafts
  • 10 sponsors met their sponsored children
  • 215 nutritious meals were served each day to the impoverished children
If you would like to take a trip with your church, school, or group to the Dominican Republic, please visit the Trips section of our website for more information.

Education Project: New 6-Classroom Building Almost Complete!
School Construction

After nearly two years of prayer and fundraising, Project Mañana is very excited to announce that we broke ground on a brand new 6-classroom building at our school in early March 2016.

This 2-story building will allow space for another 100 students to attend Project Mañana's private school!

Thanks to the efforts of Project Mañana's construction team and the help from a recent mission trip of 32 people from Project Mañana's sister school (Cincinnati Christian School), progress is moving along on the building.

As for today, the first and second floor walls and ceilings are complete. This week the construction team will build the stairs, pour the floors, add smooth cement, and install doors/windows.

"This is truly a dream come true! I'm amazed every time I come to the school to see this beautiful building that will provide an education to so many children in this community. Now, I can't wait to raise another $50,000 to build the next building [6-more classrooms], so we can again increase capacity at our school," said Nebraska Berman, Project Mañana's executive director.

Project Mañana's private school currently has 89 students enrolled. Our desire and hope is to increase capacity to 150+ students in the upcoming 2016/2017 school year. However, to make this dream a reality, we need YOUR help. Would you please consider sponsoring a child? Starting at less than $1 per day, you can send a child to school and provide them with a daily nutritious meal.

This past weekend was busy for Project Mañana's Institute for Authentic Manhood™ with graduations in two Dominican prisons: Rafey (located in Santiago) and Puerta Plata.

And, on April 23rd, a third graduation will take place in the prison located in San Cristobal.
