Blogging Beyond Borders: We are headed to the Dominican!! Join the team!

Sugar cane weigh station outside a batey (or village).

(Project put on hold, but please contact me for future dates and interest!) Hey writer & photographer friends! I am looking for a team of writers, bloggers, and/ photographers who want to use their gift to educate others on the educational and spiritual needs of the children of the Dominican. Partnering with Freedom International Ministries, Freedom Bloggers seeks to use the power of the written word and beautiful images to educate others on the ministry.

What you can expect:

  • 6 days in the Sugar Cane Villages of the Dominica Republic. We will fly into Santo Domingo, be based out of San Pedro de Macoris, and will enter the villages each day to work with the preschool (& most likely next year’s kindergarten) children and their families.
  • You will be ‘assigned’ two children who need sponsorship. You will spend time with them, watch them, help them with their school, meet their families, and learn about their every day life. If you are already their sponsor, you will be blessed to get to know that child and see how the resources of God are being used to change lives!
  • In return, you agree to blog about the work being done for these children. You will use your blog that week as a platform for communication between the Sugar Cane villages and America. You will seek to find sponsors for your two children through writing, photographs, and sharing of how the gospel is alive and moving in the Dominican. If you are spending time with your sponsored child, we just ask that you share about how it impacted you to see their education first hand in hopes that others will catch the vision.

Projected Travel Dates:

August 28 – Sep 3 2012

December 27  2012 – Jan 2 2013

How you Can Help:
