News From Project Mañana!
Company Helps Children Build Garden & Paint Mural
Guidemark Health Team
Team from Guidemark Health
Project Mañana is excited to report a "fruitful" and "colorful" visit from our friends at Guidemark Health, a New Jersey-based communications agency. (See photos of their trip.)

Under the campaign #SowSeedsOfMañana, Guidemark Health helped raise awareness of Project Mañana's Nutrition and Education projects. The team, comprised of some of Guidemark Health's top executives (including their CEO, Matt Brown), showed their dedication and generosity to the impoverished children and their families of the community of San Pablo, Dominican Republic in tangible and creative ways.

The Garden
Located at Project Mañana's Nutrition Center, the organic garden project (led by Lori Phoenix) was strategically designed to teach the children about agriculture, sustainable food production, and proper nutrition. Planted entirely by the children, the lush garden boasts organic peppers, eggplant, cucumbers, tomatoes, limes, oranges, and flowers.

As an added bonus, each child had the opportunity to draw a picture of their dreams/hopes on special "seed paper"; which was then planted in the garden and will grow into heads of lettuce.

The Mural
Spanning the entire length of the first floor of the new school building located at Project Mañana's private school, this 42-foot, full-color mural is absolutely gorgeous.

Designed by Gayle Macdonell and painted by the Guidemark Health team, the mural captures the vision of Project Mañana's Nutrition, Education, Clean Water, and Timothy projects. To really bring the mural to life and create a connection with the community of San Pablo, the children, teachers, staff, and residents "left their mark" by adding their hand print.

The addition of this mural to our school creates an amazing environment for the children where they can step out of the poverty in their community and into an environment that encourages dreams, hope, and education. There is literally no place like Project Mañana's private school in the whole community.

On behalf of all the children and their families living in San Pablo, Project Mañana would sincerely like to thank Matt Brown, Tina Fascetti, Gayle Macdonell, Lori Pheonix, Radoslav Ratkovic, and all our friends at Guidemark Health.

One of Project Mañana's core philosophies is to partner with and empower national leaders. The purpose of this philosophy is to promote project sustainability and allow for organic and exponential growth.

In Dominican culture, giving-back and volunteering to help those in need is not common, due to many social and cultural barriers. However, there is one church that is on the forefront of leadership in this area, Iglesia Bautista Vida Nueva (New Life Baptist Church).

Project Mañana is very excited to announce that Iglesia Bautista Vida Nueva has become our first in-country partner church. Together, this partnership will allow the opportunity to share the gospel and disciple many children and their families.

To date, Iglesia Bautista Vida Nueva has blessed Project Mañana with encouraging visits, awareness campaigns, and a large donation of much-needed school supplies. We are very grateful for our brothers and sisters at Iglesia Bautista Vida Nueva.

Rural Community Receives Clean Water & Shoes

On November 7, 2016, Project Mañana traveled to the rural community of El Copey; which is located close to the Dominican/Haitian border. A team of 15 people made up of American and Dominican missionaries delivered 100 clean water filtration systems and 100 pairs of shoes throughout the community.

Project Mañana would like to give a special thanks to Paul Knerr, Filter of Hope, Because International, and Covenant Community Fellowship for their partnership in making this event possible!
