You can give the gift of health. Donate $45 today for one filter and training.

     

 

      Poverty is palpable in the Guatemala village

of Nimasac. You can almost taste it because the water is contaminated. 

     The town only got running water three years ago. Now it's time to get that water purified to keep diseases at bay; getting sick from bacteria and amoebas is not uncommon. A clinic offered

a few years ago demonstrated that people were dehydrated, not drinking enough water.

     Families are receiving classes to show them how to use the water filter correctly and to teach them daily practices for good health. This begins 

     
 

with a train-the-trainers program for the whole village. Four hundred families have signed up to receive a filter and education; each family will contribute 10% of the cost.

Health & Well-being

Lack of clean water, widespread malnutrition, inadequate local healthcare and more contribute to the need for better health. We're working with our partners to improve this situation in the Guatemalan highlands.

Economic Development 

The rural economy is focused on subsistence farming with little opportunity to learn skills for production, service, or business. Small steps to offer more opportunities are underway and will grow as the future unfolds.

Be the change you want to see in the world.
