Projects With the Peace Corps

We work in close contact with the Peace Corps in Bolivia. Through their administration, we strive to get funds to Volunteers in the field, as quickly as possible, to aid in their water and sanitation projects. The Peace Corps operates under the premise that they are there to provide manpower, education, and training, not money. Sustainability can only be achieved through helping and teaching. Their projects are generally implemented at a very low cost, and are designed for great impact... + read more

This will be a repository for references relating to the implementation of appropriate technologies in water and sanitation in developing areas. Most of the solutions are low-tech. They are simple to implement, based on skills which are easy to learn and teach, and utilize low-cost easily-obtainable materials. We are accumulating a library, with resources in every medium, which will provide the basis for learning and teaching... + read more

Article from the Wall Street Journal Featuring a Water Study by Dr. Chan

WALL STREET JOURNAL HEALTH JOURNAL By MELINDA BECK Studies Lead You to Water, But How Much to Drink? July 1, 2008; Page D1 Lately it's been in vogue to dismiss the advice to drink eight glasses of water a day as a "medical myth."

We respect the knowledge of the community in determining the hierarchy of needs, and the best solutions for their problems. Local participation assures that the projects have support, and will be maintained into the future, as the local... + read more
