Peru: Tastayoq Village Water Project

Tastayoq Village Water Project, Peru, Community Project Travel

Year: 2010

Achievements: The group built a water reservoir and connected the majority of the houses in the village to water. Additionally the group carried out repair work on the footbridge that was built in 2009. Following heavy rains in early 2010 unexpected damage was done to this small but important river crossing.

Impact: Fresh running water to this village bought with it improved health and hygiene conditions and reduced the effort and time taken to access clean water. The repair work on the bridge meant that the school children now have safe passage to and from school.
