H2O for Life engages youth across the country to investigate the global water crisis while taking action to raise funds to provide water, sanitation and hygiene education to schools in developing countries. El Porvenir is our NGO partner in Nicaragua. They provide a school to school connection with photos, project desriptions and stories about life in one school. Over the past 6 years, H2O for Life has donated more than $80,000 for projects through El Porvenir. I personally volunteered on a "work" team and know that the work being done is making a difference for schools and communities in Nicaragua.

They are one of our TOP NGO partners that we have worked with. We can't imagine doing our work without including El Porvenir as a top provider of schools.

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

Provision of GPS coordinates to all school projects that would help our US schools be able to locate the exact school location within the country. More photos- But- El Porvenir is at the top of the bar for our NGO partner relationships.

SOME ORGANIZATIONS TALK, WE CALL THEM BRIEFCASE NGOs. SOME ORGANIZATIONS ACT, BENEFIT THE PEOPLE, MAKE A DIFFERENCE, THAT'S HOW I DESCRIBE EL PROVENIR.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

In the sharing of information on initiatives such as water projects, bio sand filters and safe and effective stoves.

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

e Expand their operations so more people could benefit from their work.
