As a Nicaraguan now living in the US, my family and I in Nicaragua have been personally impacted by the work carried out by El Porvenir. El Porvenir built the first water well in my town of Puertas Viejas. As a child, my brothers and I had to get up every morning at 4:00 am to get water and had to carry it in buckets on our heads from wherever we could find it for consumption and to do the housechores. Some times we had to drink the contaminated water from the lake or a nearby creek, but that was the only water that was available. When El Porvenir built the waterwell we finally had clean water to drink, bathe and do the house chores without us kids spending hrs and hrs carrying water to our homes. Instead, we could dedicate more time to our school work and to help our parents with other house chores.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Can't think of anything. They are doing an amazing job.
