Partners involved
One Drop thanks its partners in the Lazos de Agua Program: the Inter-American Development Bank, The Coca-Cola Foundation, and Fundación FEMSA — as well as ConvidArte’s executing partner, Fundación PLAN, and the Municipality of Tumaco and Aguas de Tumaco — for making this life-changing project possible!
Our key strategies

ConvidArte is part of the Lazos de Agua Program. Implemented by Fundación PLAN, this program benefits from the active participation of the Aguas de Tumaco E.S.P utility, the Municipality of Tumaco, and the local community, who contribute money, technical assistance, and in-kind services. ConvidArte also counts on the active participation of the talented artist groups that carry out our Social Art for Behaviour Change (SABC) interventions: Agencia de Comunicaciones del Pacífico (ACOP), Maestros del entretenimiento, and La Guagua.

A·B·C for Sustainability


  • The aims are to increase sustainable access to safe drinking water for 820 urban and 1,886 rural households, to increase sustainable access to basic sanitation services for excreta disposal for 1,526 rural households, and to improve handwashing stations for 1,526 rural households.

Behaviour change

  • This project fosters the following behaviours through SABC interventions: drinking water treatment and safe storage, handwashing with soap and water at key moments, and payment of the water and sanitation services tariffs.


  • The ConvidArte project creates an enabling environment by strengthening the WASH supply chain, to increase the pace of access to drinking water and sanitation services.
