El Porvenir

http://www.elporvenir.org Established 1990 Member since 2006

Mission and Vision

Grassroots organization committed since 1990 to help the rural poor of Nicaragua uplift themselves starting with water and sanitation projects. Hygiene education and watershed protection components have been added to create a holistic model of intervention.


El Porvenir has worked for many years in several municipalities of Nicaragua, has a small local office in each, and local personnel. We are well known in these areas and communities readily find us to ask for financing for projects, and for follow up. El Porvenir does not initiate projects, the communities come to us to request a project. The community provides the labour and some of the financing for the projects, El Porvenir provides some of the materials and technical guidance.

Project History Details

We've done some evaluations of our past projects going back over the 25 years of the organization and these show some success in our quest towards sustainability. Please see: http://www.elporvenir.org/evaluations/ for some of these.
