Success Story - Las Vueltas

Dona Arcadia de la comunidad de las Vueltas, es una madre soltera que tiene 3 hijas adolescentes. Antes, ellas debian ir a traer agua hasta la quebrada, esto era peligroso porque el camino es solo y la distancia muy larga.

En la actualidad Dona Arcadia y sus hijas tienen agua en su casa a traves de una puesto domiciliar.

"Ahora ya no me preocupo por lo que les pueda pasar algo a mis chavalas en el camino y sobretodo el agua es mejor: - Dona Arcadia

In the community of Las Vueltas is a single mother named Arcadia who has three young daughters. Before EP's project, they would journey to get their water from a river gorge. It was dangerous because it was a very long isolated path to the river.

Now, after working with EP, the family has water in their house.

"Now, our water is better and I don't have to worry that something could happen to my daughters on that journey to get water" - Arcadia
