This rating was published 04/01/2021 and includes data from FY2019, the most recent 990 received at that time.

El Porvenir's mission is to partner with rural Nicaraguans to develop and implement lasting projects and educational programs that increase access to clean water. We do not initiate projects; staff members respond to requests for assistance from rural villages. Village residents elect their own project committee, provide all labor on a volunteer basis, and take responsibility for the long-term maintenance of all projects. We encourages the community to include women among the committee members. We provide technical expertise and training, lend tools, and fund the materials needed to complete the projects. Community health education staff visits the projects periodically after their completion to ensure villagers know how to properly maintain their projects.
