Description

This project aims to study the possible solutions of basic services and equipment, focusing mainly on water supply. The lack of access to this resource impedes the development of those who suffer from it, since their main economic and human efforts are devoted to obtaining it.

Objectives

Identification of settlement facilities and infrastructures to positively influence the development of the settlement.
Create a sustainable water supply proposal for San Camilo.
Internalize alternative supply systems.

Beneficiaries

300 people

Context
