My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for El Porvenir, Westminster, CO, USA
I have been on two work trips, in 2005 and 2009. Accommodations are basic in a very poor country like Nicaragua, but we were always well-fed and safely housed. Volunteers assist in building wells, latrines, or wash stations. Handyman skills are not required, and all tools and supplies are provided. I find the work to be enjoyable and personally rewarding. The groups I've been on were very friendly and enjoyed socializing at the hotel each evening. We work hard and accomplish a lot in just a week. A couple of additional days are spent sightseeing and doing cultural excursions. These too are fun and enlightening. I've seen the sea, lakes, volcanos, markets, museums, and more. I strongly support El Porvenir and have become a regular donor and board member as well.
