Registration for Agua Viva Summer 2020 Mission Experience
Description

Did you know that 664 million people on the planet do not have access to safe, clean drinking water? That is one in ten people. Agua Viva is helping communities not only get access to water, but to set up a long-term maintenance system for this precious water source. With your help, we can improve the quality of life and health of these communities.

Agua Viva Serves leads sustainable, clean water projects in Costa Rica. St. Luke’s will work alongside the community to connect pipes, dig ditches and bury pipeline to bring water to remote areas on the Nicaraguan border. All of the community sized projects include a co-op component to continue to maintain the systems for the future.  Agua Viva partners with communities to build a board of directors and begin collecting money to build a maintenance fund for ongoing operation.
