The Latitude Project partnered with three trip volunteers who fundraised $3000 each to join us in working with the community to build a solution. A huge thank you to Kim Stang, Chelsea Gasper, and Vanessa Panton for your hard work in fundraising and making this project possible.
To partner with the communities of San Antonio, Santa Elena and Ceilan to design and implement long-term solutions to their contaminated wells after Hurricane Nate.
To build and install 50 clean water filters + holding containers for each household in the communities.
The rural community of San Antonio is located in the San Juan region of Nicaragua. After Hurricane Nate devastated almost every household in the village, all of the wells have been contaminated, furthering the need for clean water solutions. Santa Elena and Ceilan, two much smaller villages nearby, are reachable only via horse or foot, 6 KM from San Antonio. Each family in these villages now have access to clean water.
