    Complete Status Report: All training complete, materials deliveries begun

    Status: In-progress

    Operating Status:

    The attached status report (in both English and Spanish) gives complete details.

    Note that 75 latrines are being constructed instead of the planned 63 because of the generosity of the May and Stanley Smith Charitable Trust in providing more than the originally anticipated funds.

    At the time of the most recent status report, phase 1 of latrine construction material deliveries was complete, as well as the planned trainings to that point.

Sustainability

Creating and measuring long-term impact

Agua Para La Vida has been working with rural Nicaraguan communities for over 20 years. Our long-term presence in the region enables us to maintain contact with our partner communities to provide on-going assistance and assessment.

The community already has been organized for the project. Each family has individually signed a commitment to work the required number of man-days. The project will be kept under close observation by APLV for four to six months after completion, and then it will be formally handed over to the community as its owner. Beyond that time, APLV maintains contact with all communities it works with to assist in addressing any issues that arise. Hygiene education, a program that stretches over several years and reaches all homes, also will be incorporated into the school's program. Finally, reforestation will further protect the water sources.
