"By yourself you're unprotected.
With a friend you can face the worst.
Can you round up a third?
A three-stranded rope isn't easily snapped."

Not only is a three stranded rope stronger than a single strand it is also able to pull more, support more, and accomplish more. Island Light is looking for those partners that will bind with us to do more than we can do alone. Each person that commits to assisting financially makes us stronger and more increases our ability to change the Dominican Republic- one life at a time.

Educational Technical Institute

Educational Technical Institute is a Technical College where students have the opportunity to learn vocational skills or a profession that can change their lives and positively impact the lives of their families.

Due to the economic condition of the residents of Paradise Village and surrounding villages every student needs a scholarship to attend the Institute. Each scholarship provides tuition and materials needed for the specific class attended. Every student accepted at the Technical Institute receives a scholarship.

The school year is comprised of three semesters. Each semester lasts approximately 14 weeks. Scholarships are awarded per semester and is valued at $30US/month

Church and Bible Institute

Partnering in the ongoing operation of the Church and Bible Institute provides the devoted Dominicans that work in the Church and the Institute daily an income for their service. Currently, we have an assistant Pastor, a worship leader, facilitator for the Bible Institute and and cleaning person for both. Less than 50% of their income is covered by donations and tithes at this time. Our total monthly expenses to operate our Church and Institute are $800US currently. Your support will help us to continue to reach out and train those in Paradise Village and surrounding communities that desire to serve the Lord thus furthering the goal of ILM to “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.”
