Our sixteenth anniversary on 1st November is getting closer and as usual, we are celebrating by raising funds to be able to keep supporting the families who live on the slopes of the Telica volcano.
First of all, we would like to say a huge thank you to all who made our campaign last year a great success. We have been able to upscale our work this year benefiting more families. Over the next few weeks, we will show you more of the impact your support has had bringing clean water, better access and alternative sources of income to those who most need it.
Our goal for this year’s campaign is to increase our number of monthly supporters. It is these donors who have made it possible for us to keep working month by month throughout these sixteen years, despite the very challenging situations we have faced during the last few years. We are so grateful for your faithful support.
We hope you enjoy this short video of our Director, Leo, welcoming you to this year’s anniversary celebration.
As we look back together over the difference your support has made, we would love you to share the stories of our work with friends and family who may be interested in donating too. Please help us spread the word and see the Nuevas Esperanzas family grow.
Make the difference on Telica by becoming a monthly supporter if you can, or donate any amount you are able, every little helps.
Thank you from all the Nuevas Esperanzas family.

15/07/2021 – Cristhian Alfredo García, aged 27, is from the community of El Ojochal del Listón, on the slopes of the Telica volcano. Cristhian has worked in agriculture from an early age, producing corn, beans and wheat, which provide the main source of income for him and his family. With the help of his father, Cristhian transports the harvest to the nearby town of San Jacinto to sell. This means a six kilometre walk down the mountain, a four-hour round trip which Cristhian makes up to five times a week.
