El Porvenir
February 26, 2011

El Porvenir provides volunteers with an opportunity to work in small villages, with the "mayor' and many of the village people in assessing the needs of the village, and then proceeding to solutions for them.
I worked in a village where there were no latrines. Each family in the village had dug a huge hole behind their houses. The El Porvenir came in with us, the volunteers, to enclose the latrines with brick, along with help from the villagers themselves. We worked very hard, made many friends, and participated in meetings of the whole village, at night, where the importance of using latrines, and then washing hands were dramatized by some of the villagers. Low tech responses to needs is key to El Porvenir's work, as is needs coming from the villages themselves. El Porvenir's primary goal is to supply clean water to remote villages.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Near Camoapas, in the boon docks.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

simply try to get El Porvenir more funding.

MY ROLE:
Volunteer & as written above.
