The installation of water reservoirs and fog catchers is enabling a few other interesting projects. As an immediate first step, we have built a sanitary block with 2 individual showers and toilets. Although this feels basic to all of us, this is a luxury for families living in the poorest areas. Many children have never experienced a shower before!
In 2024, the communities will also start with agricultural activities. In addition to growing some of their own vegetables, they will start growing cacti, a relatively simple process that doesn’t require much water and will allow them to make money by selling these on local markets. An interesting way to increase the disposable income of the poorest families!
