Challenge

Argentina is one of the countries with the highest contamination of groundwater by arsenic and, in some rural areas, the water deficit increases the risks that the consumption of contaminated water brings. Children are the population most vulnerable to the impact on the health of the consumption of poor quality water and not having clean water in their schools exposes them even more to this contamination.

Solution

Economically and ecologically sustainable access to drinking water solution is through the harvesting of rainwater. It's also most appropriate to eradicate the consumption of water contaminated by arsenic and to implement it in the aridest areas. Building this solution in rural schools will solve the demand for safe water for the children and teachers attending these schools. In addition, we'll accompany with training in good practices, health, and the maintenance of the installed infrastructure

Long-Term Impact

Rural schools function as a community center that brings together families. Having drinking water in these centers will ensure a better living condition for the children and the healthy consumption and nutrition of the people in the community.
