Program Name: Hands to Build
To expand access to improved water & improved sanitation conditions for everyone in our community.
Millions of children worldwide, and in Peru, die due to low access to improved sources of water and improved sanitation.
Short term goal: Expand access to improved sanitation & water.
Medium & long term goal: Reduce incidence of diarrheal disease and other sanitary related conditions.
In 2018, we built 6 bathrooms from scratch and impacted over 60 people directly. Our water filters went to 110 homes and reached over 1,000 people.
2018 – 110+ Sawyer water filters distributed
2019 – 6 bathrooms built from scratch
We collaborated with 8 engineering students from the volunteer group “Solidarinsa” from INSA Lyon University, France.
Together with 33 Buckets in 2018, we gifted Sawyer water filters to every one of the 110 families living in Villa Los Angeles.
Innovation & Future Aspirations
Our goal is that every household in Villa Los Angeles has access to filtered drinking water as well as improved sanitation.
