Unidad Educativa 29 de Septiembre, Ecuador

In the fall of 2015 a team of members from Agua Viva traveled to five different sites in Ecuador in hopes of locating three candidates for water installations. The trip was a huge success and Agua Viva returned with four new willing partners. This September 2016, Agua Viva will be returning to Unidad Educativa 29 de Septiembre, a large school in a remote village San Miguel de Pomachaca, Guamote, Ecuador. This school has 450 students, eager to learn, but with NO access to clean drinking water what-so-ever. Our new friends welcomed us and asked us to return as soon as possible in hopes of reducing absenteeism in the school where diarrhea and water borne illnesses is taking its toll on school attendance.
