For many of us, clean drinking water is available with the turn of a tap. But the reality in Los Norteños, Nicaragua is very different. Los Norteños, a small, rural community outside of Granada, has never had running water in its 27 years of existence. Women spend several hours each day collecting water and walking long distances under the hot Nicaraguan sun to reach clean water for their families.
For members of Los Norteños, building their own artisanal well would be a dream come true. This year, with your generous support, we could help make this dream a reality. The Secretary of the Cooperative, Marta, says:
“This project is important to me because it’s securing my family’s right to water and its improving my quality of life. It’s like a dream: we'll finally be able to secure access to water for our children, and our children's children.”

Casa - Pueblito is proud to support grassroots initiatives that promote gender equity and health in communities such as Los Norteños. Our hope is that one day, we will no longer be needed, but as long as there is a need to struggle against oppression to secure basic human rights, to fight for economic and sustainable development, and to respond to the destructive effects of climate change, we remain committed to standing alongside our partner communities in our collective struggle for equity and social justice – now in 2017 more than ever.
