                             A Message from the Director
This has been one of the most successful fiscal years in EAB's history, and on behalf of the many
good Dominicans whose lives are changed for the better because of our programs, I offer you my
sincere thanks. The generosity of our donors has been all the more valuable in these troubling
economic times, enabling EAB to send vital resources where they are most needed, along with a
message of hope and solidarity. Because of you we have been able to expand our services this
year, adding more scholarship students to our rolls, building more houses and delivering more
medicines than last year, and including a new high school group on our immersion program.
Please take a few minutes to see how-- via the numbers and the stories-- your gifts have made an
enormous difference.

me achieve my goals."

           One of the five New Houses
             Built This Past Summer
This is the 48th new house we have completed since the initiation
of our home construction program in 2000. These cinder-block
homes replace dwellings made of scraps of wood, tin, and card-
board, and create a new story of hope in our communities.
Community residents provide the design and skilled labor; our
student groups provide the funding and help with the pick and
shovel work. Together, we're building justice, one home at a time.

      “Three Cups Of Coffee”: Education
      Across Borders’ First Large Scale

Our first large-scale fundraiser was a huge success, raising
over $14,000 for our community projects, including the electrifi-
cation of our free-access community clinic in Franco Bido.
Felicia Puntiel, a coffee farmer, parent to two high school
graduates, and director of the clinic, was our special invited
guest. Her stories of struggle, hope, and triumph earned a
standing ovation, and made for an incredibly special evening.

                             Pentecost Project Testimonial
My experience on the Pentecost Project (Summer 2009)
expanded my horizons on both a global and a personal
level. I witnessed firsthand to the effects poverty has on
hardworking Dominican families in both rural and urban
communities, and was given the opportunity to live and
work in solidarity with these gracious people who opened
up their homes and their lives to us. The encounters I had
with our Dominican friends and families will stay with me for
the rest of my life. I took home stories and pictures from
my experience to share with people living in my community,
but more importantly I brought back with me a deeper
sense of purpose, a renewed spirit, and a desire to advo-
cate for social justice both abroad and in my own commu-

 Education Across Borders transforms communities
 through bonds of genuine relationship. Our work pro-

 that this solidarity is the path to our fullest humanity and
