“Traveling with EOS was an amazing experience that allowed me to get a close-up view of the work being done in Nicaragua. It was also a terrific way to see different parts of the country, the changing landscapes and a chance to stay in an eco-lodge on a majestic coffee farm. I have been attending EOS events and reading the newsletters for a while, but being in Nicaragua gave me insight into both the complexity of the work and the ingenious simplicity of the equipment being used to clean water. The highlight of the trip was seeing the chlorinators at work. Prior to taking the trip, I imagined the chlorinators to be large and cumbersome. That couldn’t be further from the truth. The chlorinators are small but mighty! Standing on top of the water tank in one of the remote villages we visited and knowing that a device that is only a few inches in size chlorinates water for over 1500 people was truly astounding. It was also remarkable to see the level of community involvement at every step of the planning, implementation and evaluation process. I was extremely impressed with EOS’s ability to continue working in Nicaragua under unstable political conditions. Most not-for-profit organizations left the country during the civil unrest, but EOS stayed true to the mission of the organization and did not abandon the vision of providing clean water. I am proud to support EOS!” – Ursuala Winkiewicz, Nicaragua Trip 2019
