Yesterday was El Porvenir
's official 20th birthday as an organization. The staff in Nicaragua planned a big event in Cuidad Darío, El Porvenir's starting point all those years ago. I was away in the USA until just the night before at a board meeting, visiting supporters and attending the 20th anniversary event in San Francisco. (The event in San Francisco was very successful, by the way.)
So I was very impressed with all the work that the staff put into the celebration. Here some shots of the exposition stands they set up outside the hall.

However, most pleasing for all of us was the arrival of El Porvenir's founder, Carole Harper.

Overall, it was a fun event. We had musicians from each of our municipalities, from communities we have worked in. Who knew there was so much talent in our areas?
|These talented musicians had everyone clapping and dancing.|
