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 project has benefited from the active participation of the Aguas de Tumaco E.S.P utility, the Municipality of Tumaco, and the local community, who have contributed funds, technical assistance, and in-kind services. ConvidArte also counted on the active participation of the talented artist groups that have carried out our Social Art for Behaviour Change (SABC) interventions: Agencia de Comunicaciones del Pacífico (ACOP), Maestros del entretenimiento, and La Guagua.

Drawing from the succesful implementation of Agua para ConvidArte Tumaco, an additional initiative was launched within the framework of the Lazos de Agua Program: Agua para ConvidArte Quibdó. Implemented from 2020 to 2022, this initiative aimed to improve the living conditions and health of more than 17,300 people living in the municipalities of Tumaco and Quibdó, Colombia.
