Challenge

In the face of the Covid-19 threat, it is recommended by the World Health Organization to constantly wash your hands. But how will these families manage to do so if they don't have access to water? Over 10 million people in Mexico have no access to an adequate drinking water infrastructure, according to mexican government data (INEGI). Families have only access to close-by sources that are normally contaminated and under poor sanitary conditions.

Solution

TECHO Mexico will install 480 Water-Collecting Systems in human settlements along the country, in order to take advantage of the rainy season and provide a quick solution for people living under poverty conditions. This will allow families to gather at least 90 liters per day and keep a health environment during the pandemic. Also, they will spare 5 hours a week currently being used to obtain water for their homes, exposing themselves.

Long-Term Impact

After we overcome the current health crisis, this project will still grant 480 families access to more than 16,800 liters of clean water per year, wich also means a saving of around 200 usd every year wasted in getting clean water from far places.
