Nearly 300 students and their teachers at Ancoraimes Methodist School lack access to clean, reliable water sources and adequate sanitation facilities. The current system provides no more than three hours of flow per day. Unfortunately, the little water they can access has is contaminated and can cause sickness. The existing latrines are too few and in very poor condition, causing additional health problems. 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. Read a full project description here.
