My name is Mariuxi Yagual, I'm the vicepresident of Engineers Without Borders at Binghamton University. My organization is working with Amazon Promise to build a water harvesting system in Hipolito, Peru. Rainwater harvesting systems have proved to be the best option for communities in need of drinking clean water in river villages. It is a simple, sustainable, and easy to operate and maintain system; people don’t need to have special technical skills to keep the system up and running for the future.
When I first heard the projects Amazon Promise does in Peru, I was captivated by all the hard work and passion that goes into bringing clean water and improving the health of the inhabitants of villages in Peru. It means so much to me to be part of this great project. Coming from a third world country myself, I can feel the struggle this villagers are going through, and now that I have the means to help them I am extremely commited to this cause. Any donations to our cause will be greatly appreciated and I promise you we will work the hardest to make a difference in the villagers' liives and health. If you have any question about my EWB chapter or the project itself, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Donations are tax-deductible!!

The combination of safe drinking water and hygienic sanitation facilities is a precondition for success in the fight against poverty and hunger (WHO). Each year, 1.6 million people die from diarrheal diseases (including cholera) attributed to lack of access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation. Amazon Promise, along with its partner organizations, are continuing to look for ways to reduce poverty and improve health in the Peruvian Amazon! Our vision is to install rainwater systems in many more villages. We also want to work with each family in the villages to install the composting bathrooms. With clean water and clean, safe toilet systems, that’s more than half the battle to maintain a healthy successful life.
