Quiché Program multimedia timeline

Lazos de Agua Program initiative in Guatemala was implemented and co-financed by Water For People, between May 2015 and December 2020 in four municipalities in Quiché department. It was implemented through the A·B·C model for Sustainability -from One Drop Foundation- and Total Coverage Forever -from Water For People-, in addition to combining methodologies and approaches such as Social Art for Behavior Change (SABC), also from One Drop.

Almost US$10 million contributed by Lazos de Agua, Water For People, the communities and the local government, helped improve the life quality of more than 41.000 people. This was achieved through the construction or improvement of water, sanitation and/or hygiene (WASH) infrastructure, the strengthening of both WASH service delivery organizations and the WASH value chain, and the implementation of SABC activities that mobilize and empower the community to continuously practice essential behaviors.
