CHANGE THAT LASTS

In summer 2021 we conducted an in-depth 27-site program evaluation of energy and water projects that we installed with partners between 2009 and 2019. We were thrilled to find that 97% of the 27 sites are still fully operational.

Water Meters = Fair Fee Structures = Water Systems That Last

🚿 In Cascas District, Peru, irregular water service left many families dissatisfied. A lack of metering had led to service disruptions because it was hard to identify overuse and collect correct water tariffs. To ensure a more reliable system, Green Empowerment partnered with @waterforpeople_peru to install meters.

In addition, community engagement is key! The board members of the Water Users Association (JASS) received training through practical workshops. To monitor the meters, JASS will work with the Municipal Technical Area of Water and Sanitation (ATM).

Thank you to @meal_a_day_americas for helping communities build resilient water systems.
