Project Type: Water System Construction
Date Begun: February 12, 2010
Date Completed: June 20, 2010
Community Name: Martillo, Nicaragua
In 2011, the community of Martillo, Nicaragua and Project Schoolhouse collaborated to construct a spring-fed gravity-flow water system. This system delivers clean water to the 18 homes in the community.
This community is located high on the slopes of Mount Musun and most of the materials for this project were transported by hand and by horse at great effort by the community. The labor for the project was also donated by the community, making them the largest donors in the project.
