The Real Nicaragua: Drinking Water for Rural Communities

FoLA's Jill Clark-Gollub is currently in Nicaragua as part of an international team of independent observers to the country's November 7th elections. In this blog post, the first in a series of short reports on the experiences of the Nicaraguan people in improving their lives in a sustainable and sovereign way, she describes how a rural community gained access to an adequate supply of affordable, safe drinking water: "Since the Sandinista revolution first triumphed in 1979, a culture of people’s power and citizen engagement has been thriving and allowing the formerly impoverished people of Nicaragua to improve their lives."
