On Tuesday, June 28th EAB launched its Annual Partners Campaign to help "Build the Future."
Your annual gift to Education Across Borders has the power to lift a family out of poverty; to help a student realize dreams of higher education and a professional career; provide a family with a dry, safe home; and truly transform entire communities. You can help us promise new hope to good people in need.
Our goal is to raise $70,000 in gifts and pledges. This will help us set ambitious goals for growth as we enter this new fiscal and academic year. The Annual Partners Campaign is co-chaired by EAB board members: Dr. Joe Sherman, Sarah Townley, and Charles Bergman. As long term donors and board members they each provide tremendous leadership and demonstrate commitment to our mission.

Jahayra was barely a teenager when I first met her, about twelve years ago. She had just completed the 8th grade with straight A’s, but she couldn’t afford the bus or the books for high school.
EAB gave her a scholarship and watched her flourish, beating “the 12% odds” through high school and right into college.
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.
