2.5 Billion People Living on $2 a Day
of its 5.8 million residents are living below the poverty line.
The needs of a typical Nicaraguan farmer and villager are largely ignored because their lack of purchasing power, nearly making it impossible to break the cycle of poverty. Families rely on primitive practices such as burning kerosene or diesel fuel for light, using open fires in homes for cooking, and neglecting to purify drinking water.
Addressing the Problem
We work with villages and small towns to install low-tech water chlorinators that require no electricity and little financial investment.
We help small business owners including farmers, food producers, and small shop owners by giving them tools to improve and expand their businesses.
We install technologies that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and preserve the environment while creating clean energy for rural Nicaraguans.
EOS empowers impoverished Nicaraguans by working with them as autonomous customers rather than charity recipients, and each beneficiary pays a share of the cost. Our team of engineers uses locally sourced materials to improve system designs that lower costs and improve efficiency for the average Nicaraguan.
Each technology is tagged with GPS coordinates allowing us to revisit and analyze technologies long after the initial installation, insuring long-term success and constant improvement of our technologies.
We work with several partners to deliver formal training to volunteers on our core technologies, assist with system implementation, and provide workshops on how to construct and repair technologies. And we train the next generation of engineers for a better planet through our exchange program.
We share technical information and serve as a resource to other groups looking to implement our technologies. By partnering with other organizations, we also leverage their relationships in communities across the globe to efficiently reach more people in need.
