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.
Special Projects for Healthy Living
Two urgent needs, and two goals within reach.
Batey Libertad Water Project: Three years in the planning, organizing, and sweating, this is now within reach. We need just $2000 more to help this community connect to the local aqueduct, and bring running water to every permanent resident. We want to accomplish this by January 15.
Composting Latrine Project:: 10 more are needed in Batey Libertad, and 20 in Batey II. At $625/each, they are an efficient way to prevent the spread of cholera and other water-borne diseases, and to improve soil quality in the local area. We want to build the first 10 by January 15. To donate to either, please notate on your check or on the online donation.

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.
Education Across Borders is looking for motivated graduate and undergraduates to help us with public relations, events, and donor relations. Please see the job descriptions here.
