Here workhorses outnumber pickup trucks. Employment for the predominantly Kaqchikel Mayan people is primarily farm work, campesinos, in fields owned by others. Average income in the region is $4.50 per family per day. Contaminated water results in diarrhea which causes malnutrition, and the highest rate of physical and cognitive stunting in the world. Low school attendance is directly related to impure water. Over 80% of the people who migrate come from areas lacking in adequate Water and Sanitation infrastructure and education.

Ahora, para estar seguros de que esto no va a arreglar todo... estas comunidades tienen grandes problemas con la cantidad de agua y, a largo plazo, necesitamos arreglar eso. Pero, les diré ahora mismo , la primera orden del día es cuidar la calidad del agua, ya sabes, controlar las enfermedades transmitidas por el agua, y luego podemos preocuparnos por las otras cosas más adelante". ​ - Brian Neff, Ph.D. Hidrólogo
