Review for El Porvenir, Westminster, CO, USA
This program is connecting youth from the USA with villages in Nicaragua to build lavenderas and wash stations throughout small villages. They also bring adult brigades to build and interact with the local people, bridging cultures and creating the type of experiences for both countries that will last a lifetime. This is a hands-on project, no standing on the sidelines, as volunteers experience first-hand what it is like to live and work in a rural Nigaraguan village, and the local people learn what it is like to work alongside Americans who have a heart. My daughter will be going to work this summer and I am so grateful for this opportunity for her to learn the language by intensive school and by immersion, and to see how the majority of the world lives. There is no better education for a US teen than this. And the people of the village gain something that will help them be self-sufficient, so it's a win-win situation.
