Proyecto Laguna to Install Water Tanks and Repair Latrines in 5 Schools

Proyecto Laguna has received a grant from Pangea ( to install water tanks and repair latrines at 5 schools in the Diria area. We are happy to be working with Pangea again this year.
Living Earth Institute ( will be providing the technical knowledge and we look forward their engineer, Alice Lancaster, coming down to visit in February.
Proyecto Laguna will be managing the construction and working with the parents and teachers to help them set up a fund for maintaining the project. Proyecto Laguna will also be providing health education classes in the school to educate the children on the importance of using the latrine facilities, hand washing, and other hygiene issues.
When this project is complete over 800 children will have improved access to water and sanitation.
We would like to thank both Pangea and the Living Earth Institute for their continued support of our work and for their efforts to help the children of Diria.
