At a Glance

A necessity for good health, fresh water is often a luxury for many people in remote locations. Help to make a difference in the lives of an entire Nicaraguan village as you assist in projects that will ensure fresh water and sanitation. Under the direction of El Porvenir, a nonprofit organization supporting self-help development in rural Nicaragua, build a latrine or village washing facility. Your efforts will create clean water and sanitation facilities that reduce disease, resulting in healthier families.
