Summary

This project consists on the construction of sustainable rainwater harvesting systems with a storage capacity of 19 thousand liters in the region of the High Mountains in the state of Veracruz, Mexico, which will allow the supply of water for families, improving access to water, sanitation and hygiene in girls and boys living in vulnerable communities with a very high degree of marginalization.

Challenge

The indigenous families of the Nahuatl ethnicity in the rural highlands of the state of Veracruz do not have safe access to water to cover the daily needs of their homes causing a high presence of diseases such as diarrhea in children. The lack of water makes it difficult to practice good hygiene habits, causing also oral health problems and the presence of lice.

Solution

Families will be trained to build rainwater-harvesting systems, which is made up of two parts: Rainwater collection from the roof of homes and a cylindrical storage tank with a capacity of 19 thousand liters. In addition, families, schools and communities will be trained in the care and good management of water and good hygiene habits.

Long-Term Impact

The project will build 50 rainwater-harvesting systems, which will allow the supply of quality water for 50 families, added to trainings for the adoption of good hygiene habits, greatly improving their health. Community water committees will also be created to ensure their participation on the design, implementation, monitoring and monitoring of the intervention.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a PDF file (projdoc.pdf).
