In October 2012, a group of Spanish-speaking, water quality professionals from around the world traveled to Water For People’s programs in Honduras through the World Water Corps program. The volunteers focused on providing training to several local community stakeholders on preventive water quality measures and their implementation. Workshops were done in all four districts for members of the Municipal Associations of Water Committees (AJAAM) – an association comprised of representatives from each of the community water committees in the district; the municipal water and sanitation advisory commissions (COMAS) – a group that helps inform government regulations around water and sanitation issues; and municipal water technicians and health workers. For community members like Alfonso Barahona who sits on the San Antonio de Cortés Municipal Association of Water Boards, these workshops are very important to understand the value of water quality and the prevention of spreading water-borne illnesses as it is something that gravely affects the entire district. These workshops are just one way Water For People helps districts achieve sustainable access to improved drinking water – Forever.
