The Laguna Sulti Water Reservoir is Full
Mano a Mano staff visited the Laguna Sulti Water Reservoir recently, and it is full of water as the rainy season begins. In 2007, Mano a Mano completed this project, which provides water access to 3,600 Bolivians. Farmers there tell us that having water access almost guarantees them a good harvest.

Mano a Mano Water Projects
Mano a Mano seeks the most feasible means for accessing water when communities ask us to partner with them. We have constructed or improved 320 farm ponds in areas where tillable land plots are not side by side; 47 surface wells in communities that lie near banks of large rivers; and 9 large water reservoirs. We are currently dredging 83 ponds built by others, which have since filled with silt, and we recently purchased well drilling equipment to be able to construct deep wells.
