Punta Cana IT Project

Punta Cana IT Project

Pilotage International is a multicultural learning center located in the largest resort area in the Caribbean, Punta Cana / Bávaro / Macao, on the east coast of the Dominican Republic. Students are of many nationalities who’ve come to Punta Cana to work in the tourist industry. At Pilotage, they learn new languages – Spanish, French, English, Russian, German and others and grow in intercultural living, personal development and Biblical wisdom. Pilotage uses volunteers from a wide base to combine learning with serving others from all over the world.

With a two man project team, WePartner completed a project for Pilotage in January, 2011. Working with the director and staff, we upgraded their email system and installed a new Microsoft Server for their network. The network supports the computer-based audio visual learning software, used by students in the lab to complete their language training. Both learning and administrative systems were backed-up and then restored on the new server, fully tested and released back to the organization.

Pilotage has established a strong base and is looking forward to expansion in other areas. WePartner was privileged to support this work in partnership with Willow Creek Community Church’s Global Connections ministry.

2010 Global Leadership Summit Team

GLS Endcap

As spring approaches, I am filled with gratitude.  Not just for this beautiful day, but for all the wonderful people I have met in my life.  Many of them through WePartner. 

 I think about the people we met in the village of Deir-Abu-Hennis.  WePartner volunteers spoke in three local churches, and were warmly received by the congregants.  WePartner volunteers also held workshops on women’s issues.  The response to their teaching was overwhelming.  Everywhere we went, the local people were warm and welcoming.  It was a great experience.

The team of production volunteers kicked it into high gear when we got back to Cairo.  Everyone was estatic when we discovered that many, many more people would be in attendance than in 2009.  We concluded the Global Leadership Summit 2010 with a song.  Nothing stirs the heart like the sound of so many voices harmonizing together.  A special thanks to all the “behind the scenes”  volunteers, who taped, ran audio and lights for the event.  Watching them working together, language and cultural differences aside, was a great illustration of harmony of spirit.
