BLOG: Miracles in education and community advancement
This informational space is dedicated to the FAM family, educators and our generous supporters
Thanks to your $5, $10, $20 donations, AMF/FAM is providing its participating families safe drinking water systems. Clean drinking water is always an issue in rural Guatemala. Using a low cost and technically very simple solution we have been able to reduce student abstention to the very minimum. By providing ecologically sound, simple water filtration systems to all families of our student population, families are give other benefits that include savings in terms of not having to buy extra cooking fuel for gas and/or wood burning systems, by not having to boil water for drinking purposes. Besides that, children and family members have showed more inclination to drink plain water in a country where sugary soda water is equated as a safe drinking liquid.
