THE STORY:

Chapters: The University of Texas at Austin and Randolph-Macon College


Partner Organization: AVODEC (Association of Volunteers for Community Development)

Project Description:
This year Nourish at UTA and R-MC are partnering with AVODEC to invest in a water irrigation system for local farmers in a rural village in Nicaragua, as well as a library for the local children in the area; both of these investments will provide more sustainable and efficient solutions for local farmers and students to end the cycle of poverty.

Project Details:
This project will take place within the community of Los Chaguites in Nicaragua. Los Chaguites is considered to be a part of the dry zone, which means it is often hard for community members and famers to get the water supply they need for everyday life and agriculture. The project will enable the farmers to use their limited water supply within the community more efficiently, which will help them to grow more crops and gain more profit as a result. There is also a lack of good resources for students within the community to get support in their school work or to just read for fun. Nourish volunteers will be working with the community to build and stock a library that will provide excellent resources to the children in Los Chaguites. Both of aspects of the project will benefit the members of the community even after Nourish volunteers leave. After the project is completed, we will be in communication with our partner organization, AVODEC to ensure that our work is being sustained and the community members are utilizing these resources.

Partner Background:
AVODEC (Association of Volunteers for Community Development) was founded in 1998 and is a local non-profit organization located in Jinotega, Nicaragua. They work in local impoverished communities on initiatives involving education, health, sanitation, housing, and many other areas. They work to make a sustainable impact within the communities, as well as work with the communities to understand their needs and the best way to help.
