Without access to clean water, the community of Cerro Verde struggles with many health and sanitation issues. This community is very eager to work with Engineers in Action to install a water distribution system that will allow the entire community to water their crops, have healthy drinking water and much more. According to the EIA project manager, the dedication of the community to seeing this project to fruition is because to them, water is life.

FIEA-Bolivia in partnership with the Methodist Church of Bolivia and in the scope of intervention of the UMCOR Program 2018-2019, inaugurated the new sanitation facilities and water sources of the Andean Methodist School in El Alto city.
Two subsystems with a direct inlet and a water tank will guarantee the water supply of the new constructed facilities (1 toilet and 1 urinal for boys, 3 toilets for girls, 2 toilets for teachers and staff and 6 hand washing stations).
WASH training workshops for a total of 450 students were also developed to reinforce the importance of hand washing and hygiene to improve student’s health. These trainings will continue during 2019.
