Bridges to Batey Ministry Team
Fairmount Presbyterian Church made a 25-year commitment to partner with the village of Batey 105. Next year will mark the 10-year anniversary of our commitment and we are hopeful for the 15 years ahead. Our FPC Youth just completed their 2023 cultural immersion trip to Batey 105. Fairmount is thankful for the work of Danny Perez. Danny is an engineer who serves as Fairmount’s eyes and ears on the ground in La Romana and helps facilitate our work in the field. He has been an integral part of FPC’s partnership with the Batey 105 for the past six years. Our aim for 2024 is to bring folks from the FPC family to the Batey 105 to continue our commitment to building this community. To learn more about adult opportunities with Bridges to Batey, please contact Brad Zitzner.

See what’s going on with Batey 105, a community in the Dominican Republic with whom we have a partnership!
In 2014, a group from Fairmount visited several Bateyes to ask questions and find out how we can make our work in the Dominican Republic most meaningful. Batey 105 stood out from other communities because the residents said they want education for their children so they can have better lives.
