ICS and WE
ICS is partnering with WE Charity (www.we.org) – an internationally acclaimed charity whose mantra includes “empowering change with resources that will create a sustainable impact in our world”. Over the next three years, we are committed to raising $100,000.
Our goal is to use these funds to achieve a truly transformative and self-sustaining water development project in the community of Kanambu, Ecuador – an indigenous community founded 35 years ago with only one local school for 15 surrounding communities. The main water source in Kanambu is a nearby river that contains contaminated water, often resulting in incidents of waterborne diseases. Some of the community has access to piped water from a nearby spring but the water is not treated and there is often not adequate water pressure to deliver water to the entire community.
Construction for the water system is off to a great start in Kanambu. In the first quarter of 2018 the community members held a planning meeting to learn more about the project and how to get started. After hearing the details of the clean water and sanitation system, the community took the first step to form a Water Committee. The Water Committee will be responsible for overseeing the water project for the community, including the maintenance and long term sustainability of the project. Please check back for regular updates.
