Sarasota Company is Creating Positive Change in Nicaragua

SARASOTA – Staff from Sarasota-based Specialized Plumbing Technologies are currently spending four weeks in Nicaragua to donate their time and services by building five houses in a small 25-person community, as part of a mission trip organized by non-profit Waves of Love. Throughout the trip, eight staff members are aiming to build five brick homes from the ground up, an outdoor kitchen and two outhouses.

The high temperatures of Nicaragua make clean and safe water a high priority, though access to it is unfortunately not very high. While in Nicaragua, SPT, with funding from Aquam Corporation, will also provide and install an individual water filtration system that will connect to the community’s well, providing residents with clean drinking water.

Water will be delivered through five taps connected to a 55-gallon barrel that has filtered the well water, allowing clean drinking water for 10 years.
