Dear Friends-

What a wild December!  With your help we more than exceeded our fund raising goal to join GlobalGiving's group of partner non profits. The final figures aren't in yet but we received enough to fully fund our planned projects for this year, and your donations continue to come in.   Thank you again!

Now comes the exciting part, what can we do with our new resources?  Right now we are negotiating with several partner organizations in Latin America to sponsor water testing and water purification programs in their communities, Some are our tried and true friends and some are new potential partners.  We want to go back to  previous projects to check the effectiveness of our work  but we also want to expand to meet our new goals.

We'll let you know as our plans for the year develop, but I have a question.  Do you want to come along?  In the past we have presented these programs just with our staff, but now we feel it would be interesting to invite our sponsors to join us and see for yourselves the good work your money is doing.  You can see examples of some of our previous trips and photos on our website Agua Pura Para El Pueblo  Please let me know if you are interested.

p.s. I'm including a photo of a school hand washing program we did last year in Tultitlan, Mexico.  It was amazing to see the students stare at their clean hands, in some cases the first time they had ever washed them!
