Replaced a failed sewage system serving 1,200 people on the coast of Ecuador.
This project serves Santuario De Olon Community of Manglaralto, Santa Elena located on the west coast of Ecuador. This community is based around a large school. The school currently provides education for 600 of the poorest children, board and care for 70 homeless children, a nursery for 60 infants (some who have been abandoned on the doorstep) and health care for 500 local residents. The collapse of their sewage system put all the children being served at risk of disease. The school had to close several times due to health issues caused by the failed sewer system. This problem came to the attention of the Rotary Club of La Puntilla in Guayaquil, Ecuador. Although Guayaquil is about a 2 1/2 hour drive, members and family members of this Rotary club volunteer at the school. The Rotary Club of La Puntilla took the lead in organizing the replacement of the sewer system with help of four other Guayaquil clubs and their International partner, the Rotary Club of Marin Evening.
