Nicaragua Mission Trip

Bringing Clean Water and Sanitary Conditions to Those Who Need It Most

Each year, typically for a week in February, a mission team of 12 to 15 volunteers helps bring safe drinking water to villages in Nicaragua in partnership with El Porvenir (link to ElPorvenir.org). Our basecamp is in the community of El Sauce and each day we travel into the nearby mountains to continue our relationship with the community we are serving, currently Los Guacimos. There we work alongside the Nicaraguan residents to provide sanitary conditions and safe drinking water. It’s a life-transforming trip you will not soon forget!
