WE Charity Water

Fast Fact

WE’s water projects play an essential role in the sustainable development process

The Objective

Kanambu is in the Amazon region of Ecuador. There is a nearby river, but this source is highly contaminated, and piping to a nearby spring contains untreated water or lacks the water pressure to deliver water to the entire community.

 

The Impact

With TreadRight’s support, WE will construct a water treatment centre in Kanambu. This includes:

  • Establishing a water catchment system, constructing a water treatment plant, laying piping, and establishing water access points at the school
  • Laying the piping for the distribution system that will allow for household access points to be established
  • Community mobilization and training, ensuring there is a committee established to maintain the project
