Individuals are enlisted to partner with a child who attends 2nd Mile Education Center to provide educational opportunities, nutrition and spiritual encouragement. Letters, prayers and monthly support will help break the cycle of poverty. Your tax-deductible contribution of just $35 a month or $420 a year provides:
• Education from preschool through the 12th grade
• Instruction in reading, writing, science, social studies, math, computer skills, English, Physical Education, and daily Bible classes
• Trade classes for the secondary students that will teach basic skills in practical things such as electricity, plumbing, business management, sewing and English.
• Basic school supplies such as crayons, pencils and pens
Sponsors receive their child’s photo, periodic updates on academic progress, and instructions on how to correspond with the child. Sponsorship will make an impact on the life of the child and the sponsor as well.
When children find out they have been sponsored there is a joy that cannot be described. They are amazed that someone so far away cares for them. It is a huge encouragement which gives them a hope and opportunity to be everything God wants them to be!
Sponsors are encouraged to visit their child by joining a mission trip to meet the child at the school and spend some time together. Trips are offered throughout the year.
2nd Mile Missions has partnered with a church in Bavaro, Dominican Republic called City of God for the Nations, to build a school on the church property. The school opened in August of 2010 and provides an education in a Christian environment for 800 students from preschool through 12th grade. A trade school provides training in electricity, business management, plumbing, sewing, and English for 9th through 12th grade students.
