We Are EOS
EOS International empowers rural families in Central America with access to safe drinking water and opportunities to generate income through simple technology solutions and education.
A Central America where communities are healthier, free from poverty, and thriving.
EOS International empowers rural families in Central America with access to safe drinking water and opportunities to generate income through simple technology solutions and education. EOS promotes, manufactures, installs, tracks, and educates its users on life-changing technology projects that allow access to clean water and create economic opportunities for individuals to break the cycle of poverty and improve their quality of life.
Nicaragua and Honduras, where EOS primarily operates, are some of the poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere with fifty percent of the rural population living below the national poverty line. A large majority of the impoverished population lives in rural areas, where access to basic services is limited and to where businesses and NGOs rarely travel. In addition to living in remote areas and possessing little purchasing power, most rural families continue to live without access to clean drinking water and have little opportunity to generate income.
Through strong community partnerships and investment from technology beneficiaries, EOS creates sustainable, life-changing solutions for people to lift themselves out of poverty. Whether it is providing improved ovens for women to start bakeries, helping rural business owners to create a chlorine distribution store, or saving lives through water purification systems, EOS is dedicated to creating a long-lasting impact in Central America.
With an on-the-ground staff of twelve in Nicaragua and eight in Honduras, EOS is a locally managed organization dedicated to the successful implementation of technology solutions through tracking, evaluating, and revisiting community installations to ensure a long-term, positive impact.
Our partnerships with the Peace Corps, Nicaraguan Ministry of Health, and many other organizations have helped us expand our reach and increase our effectiveness in order to continue our mission of building stronger communities. We are proud to work with Universities across the United States to offer educational and cultural opportunities to the next generation of change makers.
