This project aims to empower 40 women leaders with the knowledge to prevent waterborne diseases and use a water filter at their homes. These Women Leaders live in a slum in Guayaquil city called Cooperativa San Francisco which lacks basic infrastructure, in particular safe water supply. The women leaders form a well-established group with experience in the prevention of domestic violence in Cooperativa San Francisco.
Our Local Partner
The Ecuadorian NGO Paz y Esperanza is our local partner in this project. Paz y Esperanza works on community capacity building for the prevention of domestic violence in several marginalized neighborhoods of Guayaquil city. Cooperativa San Francisco is one of the most vulnerable ones. Paz y Esperanza has been supporting the group of women leaders in San Francisco for about 6 years. The team of Paz y Esperanza that works with these group of leaders enjoys their trust and appreciation.
The official fundraising for this project will start when the agreements with our local partner are finalized. Nevertheless, this project will receive the funds that may be left after completing the current project.
