Our Mission

Join Our Team

Sponsoring children to attend CERINFA (Center of Education, Restoration, and Nutrition) comprises the heart of the Pimentel Project. CERINFA selects from among the poorest children in Pimentel and enrolls them in a K-8th Grade, Christian based education. Child Sponsorships provide for the cost of enrollment, two hot meals each school day, and a uniform.

We can help local churches and parachurch ministries plan, organize, and experience missions to the Dominican Republic. You will get to see, firsthand, the impact of caring compassion on the lives of children and the impact it can have in a city. We look forward to partnering with you and helping you get your team together.

Our strategic partnerships in the Dominican Republic, Nigeria, and Kenya are actively engaged in reaching and equipping people for life and ministry.

Radhames Quezada
MIVA Pastor

By the age of 17, Radhames lived alone on the streets without food, hopeless, and suicidal; however, God intervened to redeem his life and future. When God saved him, he made a promise to share God's love and do everything he could to change the course of other children's lives. The Father continues to use "Pastor Radha" to reach the city of Pimentel.

JW Brown
Founder, Board Member

The origin of the Pimentel Project, Inc. is quite simple. JW Brown was called to the ministry while in high school. He attended Bible College and earned a BS degree with a ministerial major. For the next 14 years after graduating from college, he struggled with understanding the details of the calling.

On October 20, 1996 at 5:20 in the afternoon, while attending a children's service in Pimentel, Dominican Republic, it became very clear to JW the very reason he was born. He had to answer the question, "what are you willing to do?" The answer was, and still is, "I will do whatever you ask me to do." The directive - now is the time complete the project and use the talents that I have gifted to you. Thus the Pimentel Project, Inc. was born. And less than 1 year later, in August 1997, the first classes of kindergarten thru 3rd grade convened.

Jay and his wife, Jeannie continue to love and serve MIVA and the Pimentel Project through frequent trips to the DR.
