Our projects are carried out using a tripod approach, which is made up of three complementary components aimed at fighting poverty: (1) to raise the population’s awareness through social  arts and popular education, (2) to improve access to water, responsible management of said resource and sanitation, and (3) to grant microcredits.The water management component involves various measures. First, improving access to water by protecting and/or rebuilding/building structures to be used as a water source, and also through rainwater harvesting . Second, developing family gardens (drip irrigation systems).
