the Workshop

The Workshop is a safehouse where women can find refuge from the street.  They are taught the Bible and skills to support themselves.  The program includes discipleship, job training and education as well as a work program.  Women from Iglesia Bautista Evangelica de Macoris also help them learn budgeting skills, micro-business finances, music, and other life skills.

This place is called the Workshop because Ephesians 2:10 tells us we are His workmanship, created in Him to do good works.  It is a place that God works on us as well, in us and through us.

Within the Workshop is a sewing training center as well as a jewelry making workshop.  This is where all the jewelry for M.E.R.CY Jewelry is designed and created.
