In 2016 we exceeded our $75,000 matching goal to continue the important work of partnering with rural Nicaraguans to improve their quality of life. We couldn't have done it without you.
Over 200 of you gave whatever you could to help us exceed our goal, raising a total amount of $83,097. Eighteen generous donors matched the first $75,000, bringing the full impact of our challenge to $158,097!
All of us here at El Porvenir are deeply inspired by your support and generosity. Thank you for believing in our mission and making our partnererships with rural Nicaraguan communities possible on a daily basis.
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 born 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.
