For 2015, FCP was awarded another matching grant of $25,000 from the Benito & Frances C. Gaguine Foundation of Juneau, Alaska. This means your donation is automatically doubled. We are very grateful for the continuing support from the Gaguines and from you.

Of equal importance the community of El Trapiche has received a global grant from the Boulder Valley Rotary Chapter and Rotary International. This grant will advance the work on the water system. These funds will pay for materials necessary to lay the main water line into the village. Special thanks to Charley Mallon of Rotary for shepherding the grant process. Members of the Boulder Valley Rotary Club & the FCP Board will visit Nicaragua in November of this year to see this work in progress and to assess next steps.

This year’s Fundraiser will finance the design and professional labor associated with the construction of the main water line, installation of a water meter and the completion of the water system by bringing water into each home.

Mission Statement
We build cooperative projects between Boulder and Jalapa that bring clean water to rural communities, empower women to improve the health of their families and foster educational and leadership opportunities for youth.
