Joe Hastings is our new Featured Donor!
When I traveled to the Dominican Republic ten years ago, I was inspired by the commitment and creativity of leaders in facing the challenges of their communities, among them decent housing for all, basic health care, immigration status, and education for their children.
We are thrilled to announce that Maritza Altagracia Michel, resident of Batey Libertad, has become the 5th scholarship student to earn her college degree. Maritza completed her studies in Tourism Business Administration this summer term, and her community celebrated her achievements in an early August fiesta, complete with a slide show and live music.
Yolanda is a mother of six in Batey Libertad. She and her husband struggled for years to feed their children, never able to save enough to rebuild their deteriorating home.
Yolanda’s family invested both a sweat and cash equity into the project.
Andrew Hermann is a senior at Seattle Preparatory School, and a two-time veteran of EAB’s immersion program, the Pentecost Project.
In his immersion experiences, he saw that the choices we make in the US– regarding coffee, clothing, or just about anything– affect the world’s most vulnerable, and guided by the relationships he formed and renewed in the DR.
Our donors' generosity has enabled EAB to expand our services again this year. On behalf of the many good Dominicans whose lives are changed for the better through our programs, we offer you our sincere thanks.
