2018: We did it! We are so grateful to the 20 donors presenting the challenge and the 155 people who met the challenge! We ended up raising over $127,000: that plus the $100,000 in matching funds brings the total to $227,000 raised!
$27,000 beyond the goal! We are so humbled by your generosity--especially since this is a year when many have asked, "What's going on in Nicaragua?" and "Can you get project work done?"
We can, and we are.
Together, we are working with rural Nicaraguans to meet their basic needs and improve their quality of life.
A bright future starts with clean water, improved sanitation, reforestation, and health education. We partner with rural Nicaraguans so that they lead healthier, happier lives. During this challenge, we are excited to share powerful stories of community members that are now leading better lives thanks to the comprehensive clean water projects they have built.
Carla (pictured here in the yellow shirt) is one of the community leaders for the community of Sayulero. As a child, she experienced the pain of losing loved ones to water-borne disease. She was determined to help her community build a better life for themselves. She worked closely with El Porvenir staff members on community improvements such as building a well, latrines, fuel-efficient stoves, and planting tree nurseries. The community members of Sayulero have integrated all aspects of El Porvenir programs into their daily life and have seen tremendous impacts on their health and happiness.
