Nearly 300 students at the Ancoraimes Methodist school lack access to reliable water sources or sanitation facilities, leaving them with only 3 hours maximum of flowing water daily. Unfortunately, the what little water they can access tests positive for contaminants and has a very low flow rate, which prevents it from being consumable or usable for latrines. Plus, previous non-EIA projects have failed, leaving students and teachers with unfinished or deteriorated infrastructure. EIA is partnering with the Bolivian United Methodist Church to implement a reliable, effective solution that will permanently relieve the infrastructure and health problems of students and teachers.
