Guatemala Water, Sanitation & Hygiene Projects

Over the past 13 years nearly 50% of the Rotary Clubs in District 7890 have participated in funding sustainable clean water, sanitation, and hygiene projects for the indigenous Mayans in the northern highlands of Guatemala.  Under the stewardship of Rotarian Rick Lawrence from the Manchester, CT Rotary Club, this has resulted in 25 villages receiving these facilities, serving over 15,000 people.  Since 2006 we have partnered with an NGO, ALDEA, which has maintained a stellar reputation for accountability and project management and the Rotary Club of La Antigua, GUA which functions as our “Host”.
