[tp no_translate=”y”]Future Kind[/tp] provided two elementary schools in Puerto Casado Paraguay with no access to potable water with LifeStraw® water filters. These devices filter out 99.99% of the bacteria in contaminated water and are an immediate solution to potable water problem at these schools. [tp no_translate=”y”]Future Kind[/tp] is also working with school officials on a permanent solution for these schools and kids. The programs entails sanitary infrastructure at students homes such as latrines and sustainable sanitary ovens.

Besides these two elementary schools [tp no_translate=”y”]Future Kind[/tp] is working on providing LifeStraw® water filters to the following communities in Paraguay as well who have no access to safe drinking water making them highly susceptible to disease.

Name of Community (Tribe): Comunidad Livio Fariña of the Maskoy Guarani Tribe
Population: 400 (60 families)
The water access for this community is raw water from the river that discharges into a reservoir through a ditch. There’s no treatment of the water, people get the water from the reservoir through a couple of community faucets.

Name of Community: Castilla of the Maskoy Guarani Tribe
Population: 300 (50 families)
This community has no access to water from rivers or streams, so all they have is a reservoir that collects rain water. The water is not treated and has not distribution system. During droughts and hot temperatures the lack of water becomes a critical problem.

Name of Community: Toro Pampa (Latin Community, non-indigenous)
Population: 2000 (400 families)
This community has no access to rivers or streams, so all they have is two reservoirs that collect rain water. The water is not treated and there’s not distribution system.

This is the Centro Educativo Pirizal, in Puerto Casado, Alto Paraguay – Paraguay.
