The programs and continued work of education, mentoring, meals, shelter, support, and comfort are the ideals needed for a project like this. They have been doing this many years through many difficult times showing a wonderful love of the people. God's blessings to Project Manama always.

I have visited Project Mañana in the Dominican Republic, going inside the prisons, touring their classrooms, observing their clean water initiatives and it is a very indigenous work that holistically meets the physical, structural, spiritual and educational needs of the people. The staff is hard working and dedicated to the mission and each person models the goals of the organization. Investing in this work is a no-brainer; the ROI is through the roof!

My wife visited Project Manana in the Dominican Republic and was truly impressed by this ministry. The school, the food plans, and the outreach with the clean water ministry has an incredible impact on the surrounding communities. When my wife got back to the states, we decided to sponsor a child through Project Manana and have been doing so for over a year now. We enjoy see updates on Project Manana's Facebook page and have actually received letters from the child's mother that we are sponsoring. I wish all organizations could be as transparent and impactful as Project Manana! - Jeremy Townsley from Cincinnati, Ohio

It is amazing the work that they do in the community. I personally support Matt and get to hear the struggles and successes that accompany this work and I'm always impressed with the resilience when things don't go right and the love that he shows for the young men in his program. They are doing a great tough work and I'm blessed to be able to be a part of it by supporting them.

I have worked on mission projects two years in a row with Project Manana. I have seen the growth in their nutrition center and school along with other services to help the people of Dominican Republic. I highly recommend supporting this organization and will continue working with them.

We have been contributing funds to Project Manana from its very beginning. We know that this money goes directly toward providing meals and an education to specific children. More importantly these children are learning about how much Jesus loves them. Project Manana also provides work opportunities to a small number of local adults from the same community. They are candid about their financial goals and expenses and are wise stewards of the funds provided to them. We have met Brian personally and his enthusiasm and passion for the people he serves and the projects that benefit them is contagious! We hope to eventually be able to travel there sometime to participate in a mission trip.

Project Manana is a project that helps so many ways in Dominican Republic. It has built a school from the ground up in one of the poorest areas in Dominican Republic. It helped cut the illness of the children in the same are by providing donated money water purification equipment for each student's home. It has cut the return rate of people sent to prison by teaching a class for men and women how to be a proper mother and father. It is a great organization and works hard to provide help to the communities of Dominican Republic. I visited there a few years ago and saw the amazing work they do.

The Chapel at the Beach vetted Project Manana and have been funding Project Manana ever since we met with Brian over 4 years ago. When I visited Project Manana I met with Brian and he took a group of men on a tour of the La Vega Prison n to show us how great the Quest for Manhood was working in the prison. The work Brian is doing is a great reflection of his obedience to God.

I was very impressed with Project Manana's careful use of the resources which are donated and how well they are managed. My family, friends and business sponsor children and that was a direct result of the quality of the PM program and financial responsbility

I have known the school's founder, Brian Berman, for 5 years. I have also met his wife. If you are looking for honesty, integrity and a true ambition to help those who are in great need; you've come to the right place. I am proud to have contributed to this organization, and you will be to. Make the decision to support Project Manana and you will never regret it.

The work done by this group in the Dominican Republic is fantastic. I participate with this group because of the direct link I have to the people I help. The money provided is used for specific projects within a targeted area and community in the Dominican Republic. I know where my money goes and the good it is doing in impacting families.

I have been working with Project Manana for 4 years now and I can whole heartedly say they operate with the highest integrity. PM first started out as a customer of mine, but after seeing the great work they are doing in the DR, I felt compelled to help.

I am not the type of person to write a check and hope it gets to the right place. I made an agreement with PM that the funds I raise through my company would go directly to a building project or fill another need that they had.

We have completed 2 projects to date. The first was buying a shipping container so they could store more non perishables. This would allow them to buy in bulk saving the school money and allowing them to feed more children. The second was buying 2 refrigerators & 2 freezers so each area of the school had room for fresh and frozen goods.

I have observed the founder Brian Berman from afar and know that my money will get to where it is needed most. He gave his life to help the people of DR and know that when you donate to this non profit, your money will be go to great use, not just overhead for the staff.
