Francisco Mateo

Case study

Community Description

Hermandad has been working with the assistance of Rotary, the Sisters of Charity, Fund for the Poor, and Oxfam, to bring potable water and health education to Francisco Mateo and the surrounding area. The project was design to address health concerns as well as the endemic flight of families to nearby cities. Phase one of the project, the design and construction of a clean water system, has been completed. Phase two, now underway, includes the educational component, with the roles of community health, system maintenance, and gender issues addressed.
