Review for El Porvenir, Westminster, CO, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

Nicaragua is said to be the 2nd poorest country in the hemisphere. After a nine day vol experience at a remote village with homes made of thin adobe near Dario, Nic, I dont believe it. Maybe they didnt have much money but the children were happy, bright and healthy. The cows were fat, horses and chickens were fit but the dogs showed their ribs. The people gave us four volunteers a fiesta after we helped them plumb and build a handwash station and erect three new latrines. About 150 of them gathered at the school to watch musicians, dancers and hear poetry. They gave speeches that made us feel appreciated and ripped apart a fat pinata full of candy. El Porvenir delivers over 90% of donations directly to the people. Ive seen their offices and there are no comfortable chairs.....Robert Burnett
