Review for El Porvenir, Westminster, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I went on the trip to celebrate my 50th birthday. It was one of the best vacations of my life. I loved the food, and got used to rice and beans each day. Mainly, I loved working with the children of the village. They competed with each other to gather stones, and wheeled the wheel barrel when my tired bones could not keep up. The countryside was so beautiful - like the shire in Lord of the Rings! Animals everywhere walking down the roads with their owners. The group of people I traveled with were among the nicest folks I've ever met. It is a great organization, and six years later I am still a regular donor to EL Porvenir. They have a bare bones budget, and if you donate, have no fear that your money will have an impact. I receive many requests for charity, but no charity is more worthy. The gift of clean water is so important, and the people of Niceragua are wonderful!

Role:  Volunteer & We built a lavendero, which is basically a laundremat - much better than washing clothes on rocks in the river!.
