2008-2009 Annual Report 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.

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 Fundraiser 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- nity.
