I am hoping to travel to Las Cocas, Peru this summer to participate in a clean water project. We would be improving the current water system in place so that the entire community of Las Cocas could receive adequate access to clean water.

More details:

Overall fundraising Goal: $2,500.00

When I will be going? June 6th – July 11th

Where is this project? Las Cocas is a small rural community of about 740-840 individuals in the Moche Valley of Peru.

What I will be doing? Improving the water system that provides potable water to 168 households in the small rural town of Las Cocas

Who will be participating? A Drink for Tomorrow at UNC and an organization from Penn State are teaming with MOCHE Inc. to travel to Peru and complete this project

How will this project be completed? We will be working with community members under the direction of a local engineer and construction supervisor. We will be digging trenches and laying pipes in order to fix the current water system.

Why do I want to participate? I look forward to making unforgettable memories with the community members of Las Cocas and satisfying their basic need of clean water. The global water crisis is solvable and this project represents a positive step towards providing access to clean water all over the world.

Ask me any questions!
