Project Overview

Global Brigades has assessed the water situation in Altos de Estiquirin and is preparing for construction to begin in 2019. This system will provide clean water to 400 beneficiaries.

Altos de Estiquirin, Honduras

Altos de Estiquirin is a dry community in a valley in southern Honduras and does not currently have a water system. The only water that community members have access to is a hand dug well that they must walk to to collect water and carry it back to their homes. Altos de Estiquirin is an isolated community with little to no water available, as much is used for irrigation of nearby crops. The dry season in southern Honduras heavily affects Altos de Estiquirin. This already hot and dry region has less water available during this time of year. This means that families have even less access to water, which can impact health conditions in the community.

Water System Solution

An engineering solution for Altos de Estiquirin has been designed with an Engineering Brigades in September of 2017. They will need a 15,000 gallon tank, and 6,600 meters of piping will be installed. Construction will begin as soon as feasible.
