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.

THE $75,000 Challenge

Thirteen 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 14 and September 30, then they will match it. Dollar for dollar.


*All gifts must be received by September 30th and identified as going towards the $75,000 Challenge by a note, email, or verbally. Funds will be directed where most needed. [Learn more]
