Occupational Ministry Site

Sports — Womens Volleyball
Dominican Republic (Jarabacoa)

Through the women’s sports site, SI is able to visit rural communities and reach young girls who would otherwise already be looking to start a family and get married. With that, we offer a program where the girls can be involved with a group of similar young women who want to break the generational norms of this culture. Through hard work and faithfulness, the girls are also offered a chance to play for the varsity team, which competes with other teams in the area. In addition, the site assists girls in being accepted to private schools so they can receive a better education than that offered in the public school system. Participants will help with practices, English classes, and bible studies, as well as get a chance to participate in public school classes.
