THE CAUSE: WHY

In the community of Chuinajtajuyup in Totonicapan, Guatemala, families have historically farmed the land, producing and selling corn, tomatoes, and beans to make a living. However, due to a severe lack of rain resulting from climate change, many of the families in the community are struggling to produce crops. As a result, many are resorting to clear cutting and shaving the trees on their land to collect and sell wood to make a living. The people of the community know that this means of making money is unsustainable and harmful to the environment, but currently don’t have many other options.

When our volunteer group visited Chuinajtajuyup, we learned that there is a large river that flows through the community. If community members had the means to pump water from the river, they could revert to farming the land. Families in the community live in poverty and do not have the funds to invest in a water pumping system; however, if one were installed, it would truly change the course of many lives there.

We are fundraising for the construction of a water pumping system for Chuinajtajuyup. The system will be designed and installed through a collaboration between local community members and Canadian engineering students. Any amount of money you may have to share to support this project is greatly appreciated. Please reach out with any further questions you may have.
