Provide for the immediate and basic nutritional and educational needs of impoverished children in the Dominican Republic.
Establish vocational training and higher-education programs to help eliminate the cycle of poverty.
Project Mañana seeks to achieve it's goals through charitable donations and child sponsorship, which unites children in need with individual sponsors who wish to address the children's immediate and basic needs. Sponsorship gives poor children the tools and opportunities necessary for success by providing benefits and supporting programs for each child - primarily in the areas of nutrition and education.
Project Mañana's team is comprised of professionals trained in the area of international ministry and relief programs. Collectively the team has more than 20 years of experience. Additionally, Project Mañana has diversified its program offerings to allow for the greatest impact. Nutrition centers throughout the Dominican Republic offer immediate aid and meet the most basic needs of impoverished children. Project Mañana's private school provides mental development with an education that is far superior to that offered in the public school system of the Dominican Republic.
Nutrition: Progress is measured by the overall health and wellness of each child.
Education: Progress is measured by standardized test scores and quarterly report cards.
