ONE DROP In Honduras - Access to Safe Water for the Communities of the Dry Tropics
One Drop's work in Honduras impacts 1,000 families and will ultimately benefit 15,000 people in the Guacirope River Basin in Honduras, an area battling extreme drought due to high temperatures and minimal annual precipitation.
This mountainous region suffers from extensive deforestation, which has further deteriorated the soil’s capacity to retain water, resulting in low agricultural yields, poor health, poverty and vulnerability to intense weather. The area also lacks the resources, materials and infrastructures to collect rainwater.
Our Goals: Improve access to safe water in order to increase the level of health and agricultural output; Ensure food security; Increase household incomes; Raise awareness of water-related issues through multidisciplinary shows and educational and artistic workshops; Promote gender equality; Develop leadership and mobilize youth so that they become agents of change. ONE DROP develops integrated, innovative projects with an international scope, in which water plays a central role as a creative force in generating positive, sustainable effects for local and foreign populations and in the fight against poverty.water Visit Project Website
