Where We Invest
Since 2003 we have pursued our mission to save lives and to reduce the incidence of serious disease in rural villages in central Nicaragua through funding projects that bring safe water to each village home via locally sustainable gravity flow pipeline systems. We also provide funds for latrines for hygienic sanitation.
The mission of Rural Water Ventures is to save lives and to reduce the incidence of serious disease among rural villagers in Nicaragua by funding projects that will provide them access to adequate quantities of safe drinking water and hygienic sanitation.
Nicaragua is the second poorest country in this hemisphere. The need for safe water and hygienic sanitation is enormous in rural areas. Central Nicaragua, where we work, is among the most abandoned, deprived and destitute in the hemisphere. In spite of successes to date, there remain thousands of small villages without access to safe water and hygienic sanitation.
