Beverly lives with her parents and sister. Her favorite subject in school is Math and her goal is to attend University and study medical forensics. Beverly would help her community by building a recreational park or community center. She helps out at home by cleaning her room. She likes to play and study in her free time and it would make her happy for her family to always be healthy.
El Porvenir is a rural community of about 135 families in the region of Chinandega. The farther in the outskirts of the city you go, the more poverty you will encounter. Since 2016, SuNica has come alongside the community of El Porvenir to complete construction of a full scale Clean Water project, piping water directly to each home, and the building of Modern Bathrooms for each family. As is the case in most rural communities in Nicaragua, most teens feel pressure to leave school to begin working and/or to get married and start families, which leaves them with no chance of enhancing their job prospects through education.
