Turning Paiges Mission in Dominican

$5,220 of $4,000 goal

Raised by 26 people in 42 months
Turning Paiges, a non-profit organization focused on community building and outreach, is expanding its reach beyond the US.

We are hosting a charitable mission to a rural area of the Dominican Republic. Two of our dedicated members, Tristen Paige, Founder, and Erica Pitts, will be traveling to Samana to teach sign language, basic math, and biblical principals the deaf as well as supplying educational materials and reading glasses.

Those in the deaf community in the DR are generally outcast for their lack of communication and are in dire need of learning skills to help them become independent members of society. The deaf are almost all poor and just barely getting by. Supporting their families becomes extremely difficult since jobs are scarce for everyone but even more so for the deaf. Our biggest focus on this mission is on teaching skills and providing tools that give long lasting benefits to build people and communities globally.

All donations will go directly to this effort and will facilitate the following:

• Visits to several hospitals and schools in rural areas of the Dominican Republic to meet people where they are
• Provide basic training in sign language, math and Christian principles
• Supply educational materials such as sketch pads, white boards, dry erase markers, crayons, colored pencils, coloring books, and math workbooks at the 1st and 2nd grade levels
• Reading glasses
• DVD players and/or tablets for playing the sign language lessons
• Airfare and modest accommodations for two travelers

The money raised will help us change lives across generations.

“This first global mission is particularly dear to me as I lost partial hearing due to domestic violence. I have a heart to be impactful in the deaf community. This is our first step to lending our hands and heart to change lives in the deaf community globally.”
- Tristen Paige

The Turning Paiges Charitable Mission to Dominican Republic is scheduled for December 20-27, 2015. Please help us help others globally with a donation today!

My 7yr old daughter recently got glasses and it inspired her to give back in the same way! @laila_loves just picked up 100 pair of brand new reading glasses, biblical flash cards, and a few dry erase boards all to be given out on our mission trip to the Dominican Republic. Laila's glasses have given her a new perspective and whole new confidence. She hopes to share that with others! I'm such a proud mom! She's small in size but she's big in heart! Oh.. And the purple glove she has on is for domestic violence awareness!! Teaching her early—raising a little community activist!
Laila is ready to spread the love through giving!
