In March of 2012, Give To Colombia was selected by the Inter-American Development Bank as the Executing Agency for the implementation of the project, "Comprehensive Models of Access to Water and Sanitation." The purpose of the project is to design and implement demand-driven and service-oriented pilot programs that will seek to provide scalable and sustainable access to basic water supply and sanitation services in the poorest and most vulnerable areas of Colombia. The project focuses on the following areas:

  • Promotion of hygiene and sanitation in schools located in rural areas. (Project Link)
  • Individual solutions for potable water and sanitation in various rural areas.
  • In-house connections for households in suburban areas. (Project Link)
