I am one raindrop; we are the fountain for change
You've heard from us just recently, but we wanted to send a quick update before World Water Day on Sunday, March 22. We are coordinating with partner organizations in the northern part of Guanajuato, Mexico (where the majority of rainwater cisterns will be placed) for a huge event.
The Coalition in Defense of the Independence Watershed, in which CATIS Mexico participates, expects over one hundred people to learn more about what solutions are out there for clean water and a healthy watershed. Representatives from communities which have organized for years around water issues will share about their experiences. There will be workshops on water education for children, how to install rainwater harvesting systems, organizational strategies and how to apply for government programs related to water conservation.
Dylan Terrell, CATIS Mexico Executive Director, will be showcasing our ceramic water filter as one solution. Check out the video that will be shown about the work in rainwater harvesting in the region. Families will have the opportunity to sign up for future rainwater harvesting projects.
Remember that March 18th is a Bonus Day on Globalgiving.org. Make a donation to our project on the 18th and have your gift matched 30%. Mark your calendars now (matching begins at 9 AM EDT).
As always, feel free to write with any questions you may have for us and thanks for your support!
As the coalition motto reminds us, "I am on raindrop; we are the fountain for change!"
