Pilotage International is a multicultural learning center located in the largest resort area in the Caribbean, Punta Cana / Bávaro / Macao, on the east coast of the Dominican Republic. Students are of many nationalities who’ve come to Punta Cana to work in the tourist industry. At Pilotage, they learn new languages – Spanish, French, English, Russian, German and others and grow in intercultural living, personal development and Biblical wisdom. Pilotage uses volunteers from a wide base to combine learning with serving others from all over the world.
With a two man project team, WePartner completed a project for Pilotage in January, 2011. Working with the director and staff, we upgraded their email system and installed a new Microsoft Server for their network. The network supports the computer-based audio visual learning software, used by students in the lab to complete their language training. Both learning and administrative systems were backed-up and then restored on the new server, fully tested and released back to the organization.
Pilotage has established a strong base and is looking forward to expansion in other areas. WePartner was privileged to support this work in partnership with Willow Creek Community Church’s Global Connections ministry.
