Review for El Porvenir, Westminster, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In February, 2010, I visited a Nicaraguan village where life has been changed for the better by El Porvenir. Our group watched villagers digging a well to provide safe, clean water for themselves. In our visit and talk with them, we found them to be enthusiastic and excited about this "gift" of clean, safe water. We drove through groves of trees planted to replace those cut down for firewood. We saw sanitary latrines and spoke with one of the local "health educators" through an interpreter. We also visited the local El Porvenir headquarters and spoke with leaders, hearing of their work throughout this area. Amazing work is being done! I am pleased to support El Porvenir with my money and my words attesting to the organization's impact in Nicaragua helping that country's poorest and most needy people.

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

visiting with villagers where El Porvenir has worked.

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

hope its story could be shared more widely.

Role:  Donor & I visited sites where work is being done.
