The Founders

Agua for Managua was born out of a life-changing mission trip to Managua, Nicaragua. We witnessed first-hand the devastating affects of poverty and the lack of even basic needs, such as access to clean water. Once home, we were reminded just how incredibly blessed we were to live in a community of such fruitful abundance. Upon further reflection, we felt strongly that it was our duty to repay that favor. Agua for Managua is the result of that call to action.
