  • “I think the world needs more people like the Cova staff: warm-hearted, hard working, and generous. The work they are doing here is exceptional. To donate to Cova is not just money to a good cause, it’s the sharing of knowledge and community throughout San Isidro to better the current and future generations.”

    Patrick Ward Impact Trip Participant
  • “Traveling with Cova was an amazing experience that allowed me to get a close-up view of the work being done in Nicaragua. It was also a terrific way to see different parts of the country, the changing landscapes and a chance to stay in an eco-lodge on a majestic coffee farm. It was also remarkable to see the level of community involvement at every step of the planning, implementation and evaluation process. I am proud to support Cova!”

  • "The most impactful part of the trip for me was the hike up to the water source. The amount of people from the community who joined was unreal. The entire community of men, women, and children came out to show us how proud they were of their water system. I also keep thinking about the people in leadership roles in the communities on the water boards. The confidence and pride in their community was amazing."
