Review for El Porvenir, Westminster, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Six of us from our church Volunteers in Mission group travelled to Nicaragua and worked with El Porvenir in the La Reina District along with 6 others. We received a very good oversight of the Nicaraguan politics and the history and goals of El Porvenir before travelling to our work site.

I feel that helping the Nicaraguans gain use of clean water, and learning about sanitation is the very beginning for them to have easier and more productive lives. I like the fact that the people need to ask for help, and actively participate in all projects, and actually take leadership and therefore ownership of all projects.

Our experience was one with great organization, wonderful interpreters and facilitators and warm, caring people.

Role:  Volunteer & I helped to plant many trees in the watershed to prevent erosion, and helped to build stoves which will take much of the smoke from cooking and help to make the women healthier with less respiratory problems.
