Population Benefited: 92

Teneria Manzanani is a combination of two rural communities totaling 92 people. The community members chose to combine after struggling to self-sustain separately. Both communities are primarily supported by farming and livestock. Unfortunately, Teneria Manzanani lacks any type of sanitation system or a designated area for elimination, often contaminating the areas near their homes, including crops and water used for farming and animals.

A sanitation system must be researched, planned and implemented to ensure community members are not contaminating current water sources, the food chain, or themselves. A future micro irrigation system has also been discussed, but will not be implemented until the health of the community is prioritized.
