We believe all people deserve clean water, safe sanitation, and the knowledge to sustain it for future generations. We partner with the people of Nicaragua so that they can build a better future for themselves through the sustainable development of Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WaSH) education projects. We also take it a step farther with our watershed management program, which promotes water flow, increases food security, and reduces the impact of climate change. Clean drinking water for all Nicaraguans—no matter how remote or how bad the road is—is at the core of everything we do.

LAND MISMANAGEMENT AND CLIMATE CHANGE: THE IMPACT ON RURAL NICARAGUA AND EL PORVENIR’S RESPONSE   Watershed restoration mitigates the effects of environmental degradation and climate change while increasing food and water resiliency. It also promotes biodiversity in deforested watersheds, increases water flow in streams, preserves topsoil crucial to agricultural production, and reforests areas with native species that have been heavily deforested. We must replant, protect, and conserve the forests so that people can live, grow food, drink and use water, and raise cattle in such a way that people downstream are able to do all of those things as well.
