How many trips have you taken that have changed your life? We will immerse ourselves in the rich history, culture and lives of the communities we serve in the DR.
Participants will stay in the homes of Dominican families for part of this experience, and will be invited to collaborate in EAB’s community development projects to improve the lives of the poor. Reflection, in both
individual and daily shared format, will form an integral part of our experience.
Approximate Cost: $1100 + airfare

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.
