A couple of years ago I had an opportunity to visit the operation of The Rainbow Network in Nicaragua. This nondenominational organization serving Nicaragua’s poorest people through nutrition, healthcare, education, housing and micro-loans. Although I had an opportunity to witness their service in each of these areas, I was most impressed with their work to help provide access to clean water.

The work of The Rainbow Network resurfaced in my world when sharing the work of author Yann Martel with onedrop.org, and their many projects to provide access to safe drinking water. “Water access projects do more than feed families, they ensure their food security.” Nicaragua is where Lil-Anna Pereša of onedrop.org visited one of the projects: “I was impressed to see that families succeed in overcoming poverty. They are no longer in survival mode.”

While in Nicaragua I took many photos of children and families benefiting from the work of these fine organizations and use this posting to share some of the photos.
