El Porvenir: Clean Water, Healthy Nicaraguans

Improving the standard of living of rural Nicaraguans through water,
sanitation, health education, and watershed management projects.

We were recently featured in United Methodist Church's Interpreter Magazine article: El Porvenir: Clean Water, Healthy Nicaraguans

El Porvenir means "the future".

ProjectsClean water means a healthier future for rural Nicaraguans. In partnership with the people of Nicaragua, we help them build a future for themselves. Providing clean drinking water is the core of what El Porvenir is about; sanitation is necessary to ensure that the water is clean. In addition to sustainable water and sanitation projects, we provide health and hygiene education and reforestation.

El Porvenir sponsors Responsible Tourism.

Visit NicaTravel with us and contribute in a substantial and positive way to the development of Nicaragua.

A fuel-efficient stove uses 60% less firewood than a traditional stove. It also has a chimney to take the smoke out of the home, reducing chronic eye and lung infections for village women.

Women and children often travel great distances to collect water. A spring capture system reduces this burden by bringing the water to a distribution tank closer to home. Here, villagers are installing pipes for their spring capture system.
