Review for El Porvenir, Westminster, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

We are getting ready for our 5th El Porvenir adventure. The work done by this organization defines "grass roots" in that it provides an essential resource for those who need it most at the least cost. The Nicaraguan people maintain ownership of the projects--they direct and supervise with El Porvenir help. Having accessible clean water, toilets, space for privacy when bathing....all of these are important, especially to the women and children.

Role:  Volunteer & We dug wells, made concrete skirts and washstands, planted trees, visited with the community in which we worked.
