News From Project Mañana!
Mission Team Helps Prepare School & Serves Local Community
Center Pointe Team
Team from Center Pointe Christian Church
Project Mañana was privileged to host a team of 12 missionaries from Center Pointe Christian Church and various other locations around Ohio at the end of July.

Some of the members in this team have been long-time supporters of Project Mañana and the San Pablo community -- and we were so grateful for their presence in the Dominican Republic! Their unbridled joy and familiar faces brought a smile to the children of San Pablo and Project Mañana's team.

During their 8-day trip, the team painted, sledgehammered, pickaxed, shoveled, and wheelbarrowed to prepare Project Mañana's private school grounds for the arrival of our students for the 2016/2017 school year.

By the end of their trip, the school was beautifully painted and the grounds were nicely covered in gravel. Project Mañana is also grateful that this team joined hands with the in-country staff in order to continue the work in the community of San Pablo by distributing clean water filters and deepening relationships with the children and the San Pablo community as a whole.

Thanks to God and this team, we are excited to report these advancements:
  • The 2-story private school building and bathrooms received its final coat of paint
  • 7 families received clean water filtration systems
  • Many children had the awesome opportunity of meeting their sponsor
  • 210 nutritious meals were served each day to the children of the community with the help of the team
  • More than 150 children attended two outreach activities with bible stories, songs, and arts/crafts
  • 3 children were sponsored by team members visiting us for the first time!
On behalf of all the children and their families in San Pablo, Dominican Republic, Project Mañana would sincerely like to thank Center Pointe Christian Church and everyone on this team.

Back to School: 2016/2017
Project Mañana Students - 2nd Grade
We are very pleased to announce a major milestone for the community of San Pablo (located in Dominican Republic) and Project Mañana...

On September 1st, classes resumed at Project Mañana's private school with an official enrollment of 98 students (a 10% increase from last year)! Additionally, the school opened a 5th grade level for the first time.

Project Mañana also open the 2016/2017 school year with the inauguration of its brand new two-story, six-classroom school building. Beautifully constructed, this new building replaced the existing wooden school building. Each classroom is larger in size, has adequate ventilation, and offers a light/bright learning environment.

Words cannot express the significant impact this has on the community of San Pablo and 98 children who previously had to cross over a dangerous freeway (watch video) to the nearest public school or didn't attend at all.

If you would like to help provide an impoverished child with proper nutrition and a private education, please visit the Child Sponsorship section of our website.

100% of San Pablo Families Now Have Access To Clean Water
Clean Water Filter

Project Mañana's Clean Water Project started because of a medical operative in the community of San Pablo, Dominican Republic.

After a team of 16 doctors, nurses, and medical professionals saw 675 patients in just two days, it was determined that 95% of the ailments being reported were related to the lack of access to clean water.

Brian Berman, president of Project Mañana, recalls that operative in 2013: "Other than the day my mother passed away, I've never cried so hard. It just seemed so simple and important... we needed to bring clean water to [San Pablo] right away."

Through the hard work and generous donations of many partners and mission teams, Project Mañana is exited to report that 100% of the families living in San Pablo now have a clean water filtration system. These systems are currently producing 15,658,500 gallons of clean water each year.

Achieving this milestone has also allowed Project Mañana to expand its Clean Water Project beyond the community of San Pablo. We will be making the first distribution of 100 clean water filtration systems to the community of El Copey in the coming weeks.
