THE GOOD NEIGHBORS OF SAN ANDRÉS ITZAPA
An estimated 3 billion people world-wide lack the ability to safely wash their hands at home; the primary essential to prevention of diseases. Nearly 2 billion lack access to safe drinking water.
The global pandemic has only magnified the urgency of these fundamental issues.
In March 2020, our small group of friends in the highlands of Guatemala set about making solutions to the problems of sanitation and disease prevention among our neighbors.
Los Buenos Vecinos - The Good Neighbors - was begun.
Los Buenos Vecinos’ mission is simple; clean water and sanitation practice in homes. Our focus is to provide hand washing stations and water filtration systems.
We implement easy-to-use, biosand water filtrations systems as well as simple handwashing 'tippy tap' stations. To date, 650 home tippy taps, 120 school tippy taps, 170 home biosand filters, 3 biosand community filters and handwash training to 500 people has been achieved. There are still many more communities to serve; and we have the passion and commitment to continue.
