Rooted in our holistic vision and these core values, EAB has expanded its programming yet again this past year. The statistics below give a sense of EAB’s cumulative impact since our humble, informal beginnings in 1998.

Health Programs

  • 103 latrines built, in four rural communities
  • 103 home projects completed, in four rural communities
  • Two free-access community clinics, providing basic healthcare and medicine
  • Vastly improved health outcomes help children attend and succeed in school

Education Programs:

  • 100 students supported full-time in 2017-18 school year (12 college, 35 high school, 53 primary school)
  • Graduates to date: 10 college/professional school; 5 trade school; 71 high school
  • Summer camps in two communities, fully planned and directed by these same high school and scholarship students, for early learners
  • Improved education outcomes enable beneficiaries to become professionals, and break out of cycle of poverty and dependence

Service Programs:

  • 58 U.S. service-learning immersion programs, with over 600 participants
  • Groups hail from 13 different high schools, universities, and parishes nationwide
  • New service-learning program for Dominican students launched in 2017-18
  • The “culture of service” EAB creates has improved career outcomes for U.S. participants, and fostered increased self-sufficiency and pride of ownership in Dominican communities
