This project has been completed under the direction of Peace Corps Volunteer Travis Martin.

The project was designed to bring water to about 20 homes in the community, where working toilets would be installed. In actuality 25 homes and a school were completed.

Travis reports:

The scope of the project was to improve the health and quality of life of the citizens of Sector Laguna, an impoverished sector of the small town of Chiclin, Peru.

The project installed plumbing and provided water access in the homes of 25 families and one school that has around 30 students.

We contracted local labor to handle the construction work, along with the efforts of the families themselves who had the responsibility of digging the trenches.

The project was completed in around 3 months and culminated in the installation of working toilets in the homes of the participating families.

We are grateful to Travis for completing the project, and again extend our thanks to Hack & Slash for providing the funding.
