WHY REACH OUT TO HONDURAS?
• The Guacirope River subwatershed is an area battling extreme drought due to high temperatures and low annual precipitation.
• This mountainous region has also been devastated by deforestation, which has deteriorated the soil’s capacity to retain water.
• The area lacks the resources, equipment and infrastructure needed to collect rainwater.
• This situation has resulted in low agricultural yields, poor health and poverty.
