Ending The Walk For Water
The community of San Antonio Granadilla, located in the rugged coffee growing region of Lempira, Honduras, is comprised of 48 households involved in coffee production as small farm owners and coffee pickers.
Currently, the community relies entirely on a few small rivers and contaminated springs for their water supply. To reach it, the women of each household trek long distances multiple times a day just to meet the basic family needs of drinking, cooking, bathing and laundry. Without easy access to both clean and convenient water, the health and productivity of the entire community are negatively impacted.View Give Project
