Review for El Porvenir, Westminster, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I weat to Nicaragua with Elderhostel to work for El Porvenir. My colleagues were wonderful, enthusiastic, intelligent, caring people. Our El Porvenir leaders were knowledgeable, flexible, understanding and fun.

The Nicaraguan people we met were warm and welcoming. I fell in love with the country and its people. I also felt that El Porvenir, for very little money, made a huge positive impact on people's everyday lives by helping to provide clean water. So simple, yet so vital.

Give it more money to do more projects!

Role:  Volunteer & I spent a week helping to build lavenderas--washbasins that flow into filtration systems so the river stays clean.
