The Power of Collaboration
Thank you to Janet Seddon with the Rotary Club of Petaluma CA for sharing a synopsis of day five of the 2019 Guatemala Summit. Enjoy!...
Don't Wait, Help Now
Your support is extremely important to our work at The People's Consultants (tPC). We realize that everyone has many philanthropic options. However, if you want to help rural Guatemalans we know of no better way. First, we are the oldest NGO focused on water and sanitation in the world! Second, we have a storied history - more than 500 projects helping more than 1,000 communities and 500,000 beneficiaries. Thirdly, not one person at tPC is paid. Everyone volunteers their time. Fourth volunteerism keeps our costs down. Fifth, a $100 donation provides water and sanitation to one Guatemalan for the rest of their life! There are many ways you can contribute towards our causes, and every little bit that you commit goes a long way in helping us fulfill our mission. Learn more about how you can get involved and take advantage of the opportunity to do some good.
Thank you all for a great 2022 for the People’s Consultants (aka Agua del Pueblo - USA)! Thanks to your generous contributions we had a memorable year and accomplished the following:
-We completed a project led by a committee of Maya ladies - Chuijomil. It was our third Rotary Global Grant!
-We celebrated Agua del Pueblo’s 50th anniversary! The celebration drew an international crowd and culminated with the presentation of a study of AdP’s water projects from the 1970s!
-We also continued our largest commitment to date: to ensure the health of Lake Atitlan. We are only going to reach this goal with your help. The increase in deleterious biological and chemical discharge into the Lake has continued. While some argue the buffering capacity is intact, most would rather be safe then sorry. Well intentioned scientists killed Atitlan’s younger sister: Lake Amatitlan.
Take the pledge to prevent Lake Atitlan from becoming another Lake Amatitlan. Join Agua del Pueblo, the Rotary Club of Panajachel, the People’s Consultants, and Mil Milagros to slow the degradation of one of the most beautiful and productive Lakes in the World!
The only way to ensure the quality of the Lake is to provide sustainable water and especially sanitation for each of the 400,000 living in the watershed. It costs approximately $100 to treat each inhabitant’s waste in Lake Atitlan’s Watershed. Thus $100 will ensure that we can sustainably treat the waste of one of the 400,000 Mayans, Ladinos, and Foreigners living in the watershed. Please sponsor a village of 1,000 for $100,000; an extended family of 20 for $2,000 or a family of six for $600.
It is through your generous support that we are able to do what we do!
