Video Documentary «Ojo de Agua»
In December 2020, the implementation of Quiché Program, a Lazos de Agua initiative in Guatemala, was completed. During its execution in 2017, the Ojo de Agua Photo Voice Gallery process was implemented, "from the eyes of the children", in collaboration with the Armadillo Artistic Association.
In this documentary, spoken in K'iche' and Spanish, project participants, boys and girls from schools in Quiché tell their experiences and their learning related to the topic of water, sanitation and hygiene.
This documentary, as well as the Ojo de Agua Photo Voice Galleries, are Social Art for Behaviour Change (SABC) tools. Through exposure to target groups, Leaders of Change, Water Committees, and actors working in the water, sanitation and hygiene sector, these products facilitate the generation of spaces for dialogue and reflection on actions and solutions to be implemented at the community, school and household levels.
They also determine strategic actions between the community and other stakeholders to improve water, sanitation and hygiene services, and enhance the sustainability of systems and behaviors.
The Quiché Program is an initiative of Lazos de Agua, a program of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), The Coca-Cola Foundation, FEMSA Foundation and One DropTM Foundation. This project is implemented by combining the A‧B‧C for SustainabilityTM model and the Social Art for Behaviour ChangeTM (SABC) approach, both from One Drop, as well as the Everyone Forever model from Water For People.
