Target demographics: Poor rural communities in developing countries.

Geographic areas served: Latin America with emphasis on Colombia

Aguayuda's mission is to improve life and health in rural communities through clean water and education.
With the support of individual donors, foundations, international organizations, volunteers, and local community members, Aguayuda has, and still is, providing a range of sustainable water and sanitation solutions to more than 4,300 people in 14 rural communities.

Our environmentally friendly technical solutions include wells, windmills, solar pumps, rain harvesting systems, water filtration, wastewater treatment, water distribution systems, and composting latrines. We also organize and train local water and education committees in each community we served. The water committees ensure that the technical solutions are properly operated and maintained, while the education committees utilize educational manuals developed by Aguayuda to educate residents on health topics including water education, waste management, and proper hygiene and sanitation practices. Our manuals are designed and specifically tailored for the communities we serve (i.e. indigenous, low education, and sometimes illiterate); they consist of step by step guides with pictorial diagrams, illustrations, hands on exercises, and group activities.
