BIENVENIDOS BUENOS VECINOS

LOS BUENOS VECINOS DE SAN ANDRÉS ITZAPA

Se estima que 3 mil millones de personas en todo el mundo carecen de la capacidad de lavarse las manos de manera segura en casa; el principal elemento esencial para la prevención de enfermedades. Casi 2 mil millones carecen de acceso a agua potable segura.

La pandemia mundial solo ha magnificado la urgencia de estos problemas fundamentales.

En marzo de 2020, nuestro pequeño grupo de amigos en las tierras altas de Guatemala se puso a buscar soluciones a los problemas de saneamiento y prevención de enfermedades entre nuestros vecinos.

Se inició Los Buenos Vecinos - Los Buenos Vecinos. 

La misión de Los Buenos Vecinos es simple; prácticas de agua limpia y saneamiento en los hogares. Nuestro enfoque es proporcionar estaciones de lavado de manos y sistemas de filtración de agua.

 

Implementamos sistemas de filtración de agua con bioarena fáciles de usar, así como estaciones simples de "tippy tap" para lavarse las manos. A la fecha se han logrado 650 tippy taps domiciliarios, 120 tippy taps escolares, 170 filtros bioarena domiciliarios, 3 filtros comunitarios bioarena y capacitaciones en lavado de manos a 500 personas. Todavía hay muchas más comunidades a las que servir; y tenemos la pasión y el compromiso de continuar.

Mission

To empower economic development through the fundamentals of Water and Sanitation- pure drinking water and sanitary hygiene -in homes, schools, communities.

Vision

We see people in remote locations inspired and empowered and inspired to be their own agents for change.

The Needs Are Great

  • More than 60% of the Guatemala population lacks access to clean drinking water and sanitation facilities.​

    • 74% 0f rural children are stunted physically, and the cognitively-the highest rate in the world

    • Children with chronic diarrhea drop out of
      school: the average education is 3 years.

  • Those who drop out become trapped in poverty and are prone to migrate.

    • More than 9,000 schools lack adequate sanitation facilities.

    • With a population 38% under 16 years the
      urgency to find low cost solutions is great.
