A Transfer of Power In the Right Direction

Water and Sanitation Administration Boards (JAAS)
Water and Sanitation Administration Boards (JAAS)

The municipality of El Negrito, Yoro, transferred the management and administration of water systems to the three Water and Sanitation Administration Boards (JAAS) in El Dorado, Guanacaste and El Salitre neighborhoods in the town of El Negrito. Water For People Honduras is collaborating in this process by strengthening local capacity of the Water Boards on issues such as organization, management, water quality, system operation and maintenance, protection and management of micro-watersheds, regulation and legalization. In the process of reaching Everyone in Honduras, this is a positive step in the right direction. In reaching Everyone, FOREVER it is a giant step forward as the transfer of power becomes embedded in the community.
