I know of El Porvenir from before it was born. In 1987 I volunteered in Nicaragua with Habitat for Humanity where I met Carole Harper. I volunteered with her again in 1089. since then, we have kept in touch and for that reason I know of the fine work of El Porvenir. I know she has retired from the organization and that she was confident she left it in good hands. I have received the newsletters over the years as well, both paper version and now by email. I have been in the communities where lives have been enriched by the water. I have returned to Nicaragua almost every year since the late 80's. I'm a Canadian so I have not been on a brigade, but I am aware of the positive contributions to the fabric of a country which is dear to me.
