God used her education to change her life...
Some of the ways we accomplish this are:
why family empowerment?
Community change starts within the family. Dominican and Haitian cultures rely heavily on family. It is highly valued and influential. Because of the investment being made in our parents through Family Empowerment, parents are coming to know Jesus as their Savior. Family dynamics and parenting styles are changing to reflect his love.
why group ministry?
We all have something to learn from each other. Through Group Ministry, Dominicans, Haitians, and Americans are coming together to serve and experience God in a different way. Through trips, eyes are opened to other cultures and ways of life. Relationships are formed, the body of Christ comes together and God is glorified.
why makarios school?
Not every child in the DR is guaranteed an education. Roughly half of secondary age students in the Dominican Republic don’t attend school. This is usually due to a need for work and to provide for family at an early age. Receiving an education changes the trajectory of someone’s life. The Makarios School exists to give students an opportunity to receive an education, learn about Christ, and prepare them for a promising future.
Positively impacting someone’s life is a huge blessing, both for the giver and the receiver. Sponsorship exists to create relationships and allow you to play an important role in the work God is doing here. Through this, you’re able to personally be a part of the incredible things happening in the lives of students, families, and staff members.
