EMPOWERING WAYÚU

Water is life: On January 2019 in the north of Colombia, the foundation had a successful mission: EMPOWERING WAYUÚ, this mission was part of the reward system to the Wayuu communities for participating in Hilo Sagrado Foundation and striving for a better future for the families through their artisanship. 


Water is life was one of the projects executed during this mission.  During this week-long it was possible to build and install 42 water filters with bio-sand and train local leaders to create and maintain them after being installed. These bio-sand filters are made from cement and special sand that removes impurities and allows the water to be 98% pure. We were able to raise 6,481 euros, having a total of 145 beneficiaries and more than 50 people were capacitated. 


This project was possible thanks to the sponsors: LEOGANT, Davita, Master Sha Tao Center Berlin, Atlantis Gothe, Anders Fardigh, Isabel Aponte, Lucy Smith, Thomas Berrue, Beate Grill, Clare Chater, Valentina Quijano R, Juan Montes, Marcela Arias, Geoff Fellows, Claudia Salazar, Kata Santana, Teresa Florian, Georg Eisele and the partners: RED Proyecto gente, Abury foundation, Copoguajira and the Canadian Association for Participatory Development (capd).


Our goal with Water is life project is to build and install these biofilter on all the communities in the region. Slowly but strongly this dream is coming true.
