In July 2015, I joined my church on a missions trip to the Dominican Republic (DR). The trip was powerful and was life changing. I was able to work alongside Empowering Action and see first hand the work that they are doing in the DR. Empowering Action is committed to helping the people of the Dominican Republic by combating spiritual and physical poverty. HeadStrong Learning Center is proud to support Empowering Action’s Abundant Life Program. This project brings bathrooms and running water to the poorest villages in the Dominican Republic. Many of these villages have little to no running water. Lack of personal hygiene leads to the spread of disease and despair amongst the villagers. These restrooms not only provide much need toilets to these struggling villages, but they also provide soap and bath water. These restrooms provide the foundation for the care of the whole person. We are excited to be a part of this project and are looking forward to updating you on the progress of this program.
