Homes For Good

On May 17th, we dedicated a new home to the family of Paula Vargas. That day, she used keys to open her front door for the first time. Light filtered through windows she never had before. She now can stretch out in her own bed under a brand new roof and know that when the rains begin, she need not be fearful of leaks and muddy floors.

Tania Picado knows that feeling well. We dedicated her new home in March. Nicolasa, Reyna, Concepcion, Trinidad, Aura Lila, Blanca and Julio, all know that feeling too. Yet there are many others that do not.

$2,500 builds a new home in Nicaragua and we are currently raising $5,000 to build homes for two families in June. The Summer rains are coming soon, but we can help families prepare if we put our resources together.

Nica Agua 3.0

Given the success of our bio-sand filter pilot project in the Dominican Republic, we are rolling out Nica Agua 3.0! Based on our model that leverages community service as currency to earn water filters, Nica Agua is currently underway with an initial cohort of 50 families in Los Robles. See here for footage from the field as families build their water filters with Yarisleidy Cortez, our Director of Community Development.
