Mission to Project Dream

 

 

 

Giving the Tools around the World to Create an

 Environment for Children to Achieve their Full Learning Potential through the use of Technology.

   

LISTA President Jose Marquez first visited Cabarete in the spring of 2004 where he experience first hand the work Project Dream has been doing in the Batey region of Dominican Republic, there he pledged to help Project Dreamís agenda by providing technology and training in an English curriculum. LISTA has donated computers in the past however we felt we needed to do more for the Project Dream community of Cabarete.   

As professionals we bring many things to the table especially knowledge share so we have decided to help develop the community by bring other LISTA and community partners to help us in this mission to explore possibilities, develop a plan of action and help finish building a school house and inaugurate the Teachers Training Center. This 3 day humanitarian mission will give the LISTA contingency an opportunity to train the teachers of Project Dream to implement technology in their classroom and give Dream schools a much needed face lift.
