El Porvenir means "The Future."

We partner with the people of Nicaragua so that they can build a future for themselves. Clean drinking water is at the core of El Porvenir; sanitation is necessary to ensure that the water is clean. In addition to sustainable water and sanitation projects, we work with communities on health and hygiene education and reforestation.

Get Involved!

There are many ways to support El Porvenir: join us for an upcoming event or plan a work trip and share in our great work.

$75,000 Challenge

Eighteen El Porvenir donors believe so strongly that everyone deserves clean water that they are presenting this challenge: If we can raise $75,000 between August 1 and September 30, then they will match it. Dollar for dollar.
