Project Type: Water System Construction
Date Begun: February 1, 2009
Date Completed: September 22, 2009
Community Name: Manceras, Nicaragua
In 2009, the community of Manceras, Nicaragua and Project Schoolhouse collaborated to construct a spring-fed gravity-flow water system. A new elementary school was also constructed in the community that year.
The water system tapped a natural spring approximately a half mile from the school. The water flowed downhill to the new school and served as a central point for the community to access clean water.
