About the water project at Luis Daniel Fonseca School

Escuela Luis Daniel Fonseca is located in the Community of El Canton, in the Municipality of Danli in El Paraiso. The school has piped water, but it’s untreated and not safe to drink. There is only one latrine which is in terrible condition and the children have no place to wash their hands.

Edy Dinora Figueroa began teaching there in August, 2019. She explains that she is trying to recover the enrollment as last year it dropped to only 13 students. Many students left for another school much further away due to the poor water and sanitation conditions. She says that a WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene education) intervention will motivate the parents to allow their children to once again attend their community school.

With funding, the school will receive a bio-sand water filter, gender specific latrines, a hand-washing station, and ongoing monitoring to measure impact and support the program’s long-term sustainability
