El Porvenir is a wonderful and sustainable nonprofit that makes a real difference in the lives of rural Nicaraguans. They hire local people to work with local people, creating jobs while providing vital services the government cannot. Water, sanitation, and hygiene provide the best chance for people to get out of poverty, and El Porvenir attacks this problem in the best ways possible.

My wife and I funded a project in Cana Brava, Nicaragua through El Porvenir. The purpose of the project was a way to honor our son. In March of 2013, we visited the site and were accompanied by their staff. We were very pleased with our project, their staff, and the community that welcomed us.

I would highly recommend anyone considering a water project, whether through a school, church, or personal reason to consider El Porvenir. They are very passionate about helping people.

I have traveled extensively throughout Nicaragua and have seen some of El Porvenir's projects and was very impressed. I am an Environmental Biologist that helped take college students from the United States to see first hand the natural treasures of Nicaragua and El Porvenir's projects were a great teaching opportunity!

I participated in a wonderful tour of Nicaraguan birds in 2009 sponsored by El Porvenir. Although the birds were spectacular and the tour guides were knowledgeable, I was equally impressed by our one-day visit to the countryside near Ciudad Dario. We witnessed the digging of a well by one community, and visited families who have new latrines. I love the stickers on the latrines and the list of rules inside, which includes, "Use your latrine every day." El Porvenir is a grass-roots organization which is providing clean water and improved health to remote communities in Nicaragua.

I was in Nicaragua last summer with Seeds of Learning. We saw a lot of El Porvenir's work. In fact the latrine on our work site(now a school) was placed there by El Porvenir. We visited several wells the dug and saw people from the community utilizing them. They are a great group!

I had the opportunity to visit two projects last year in Nicaragua: community members physically digging a well and a latrine project which included careful directions and educational posters on sanitation. Familiy members shared with us the value of these projects. We also saw a reforestation project. El Porvenir requires communities and individuals to invest in the project, performing labor; it is not a matter of others coming in and doing for them. Access to clean water and measures to protect water are essential to prevent disease, as well as allow to support the economy. This is an excellent organization.

This organization is amazing. When I traveled to Nicaragua with a group from my college, Rob Bell gave a talk to us about water issues in Nicaragua. It was clear that the organization was acccoplishing so much in a sustainable way. I definitely hope to work with El Porvenir more in the future!
