I've been to Nicaragua twice with El Porvenir and plan on returning again next year. The work they do there is amazing and I'm proud to be a supporter. El Porvenir gives great support to the work brigades, monitoring the food and water as well as supplying the best interpetors. We learned about the country's polictical and economical developement, we did some sightseeing and worked very hard. It's a beautiful country and Nica's are beautiful people who are very welcoming. I've been very pleased with my experiences with the organization and the country.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
seeing a job well done and very happy people gaining something we take for granted (i.e. a safe bathroom or bathing area)
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I'm not sure. I feel most of the bugs seem to be worked out.
Volunteer & First trip we built latrines and I learned how to make mexla (cement) on the ground. 2nd trip was a laundry washing/bathing station.
