We’re so excited to announce that our pilot project will be located in Candelaria, Colombia!
Candelaria is a small, close knit community made up of 146 families, and 730 people. It is located in the north of Colombia, about 7 miles inland from the Caribbean coast, and is surrounded by rolling hills, open plains, and tropical wetlands. The people of this community are mainly subsistence farmers, growing the food they need, and a little to sell.
Changes over the past several years have dramatically changed the water situation in Candelaria, leaving them struggling to find a year round supply of water. You can read more about the project, and the challenges this community faces, by clicking here.
