I have supported El Porvenir for close to 20 years, ever since I learned about its work with rural communities in Nicargua. I deeply believe in EP's work because (1) it involves the basic human needs of clean water and sanitation, (2) it uses a self-help approach, (3) its projects are sustainable , and (4) it operates on a very slim budget. EP's staff members live in the regions it serves and have a long term relationship with the communities. I have visited various of the communites and witnessed how deeply appreciative the people are of EP's help.
