WHY REACH OUT TO NICARAGUA?

• The Estelí region is located in the Dry Tropic zone.
• Infrequent and irregular rain has contributed to very limited access to safe water.
• As a result of regional policies for managing natural resources, very little infrastructure has been built to collect rainwater.
• These policies have also contributed to the deterioration of soil conditions, resulting in low groundwater retention.
