Project #262 | Safe Drinking Water Solutions for Rural Communities in Central America
Our Partnership with EOS International
Over 28 million Central Americans lack safe drinking water. Safe and accessible drinking water is a fundamental human right, yet one of the greatest threats to human health, responsible for over 3.4 million deaths worldwide every year, most of them children. Each year, these deaths could be avoided if the risk factors associated with unsafe drinking water were addressed. Without safe drinking at home, in schools, and in places of work, it is disproportionately harder to lead safe, productive, healthy lives.
Through our partnership with EOS International, 40 rural communities in Honduras are receiving technical assistance, community capacity building, and water quality monitoring. EOS uses a “Circuit Rider” model, in which water technicians provided monthly support to each community. Over the course of the project year, 16,000 Hondurans will be impacted with improved water quality and capacity to repair and maintain community water systems!

Thank you for making this possible!
Our movement is grassroots, to us that not only means the work on the ground is led by local leaders with the support of the community, but it also means that we raise the funds for our projects through everyday donors just like you. In addition to all the donors that gave $25, $100, or $250 and the campaigners that ran a race or donated their birthday to raise funds, we also want to thank our generous business, school, and faith sponsors who believed in our work and joined the movement.
