Agua Vida is our annual push to support families across Mexico with clean water through rainwater harvesting programs. This year we are committed to impacting 100 individuals and harvesting 450,000 liters (119,000 gallons) of rainwater, to provide each family with an autonomous water source for up to 12 months of the year! Funds support rural and indigenous families located in areas such as remote Oaxaca, Guerrero, and Chihuahua. These programs receive sporadic funding and can significantly use the support! Learn more about the projects at https://islaurbana.org/en/.
1 in 10 people in Mexico NEED access to clean water.
In rural populations, less than half of the homes (43.2%) have access to water on tap. Families resort to hauling water from precarious, far-away, and low-quality sources.
