About Our Current Project

Our current project aims to provide clean water to the rural village of Pinalito in the central Dominican Republic.  Pinalito lacks a functioning municipal water supply, so its residents are forced to drink from a river heavily polluted by bacteria and agricultural contaminant; this has led to a high incidence of gastrointestinal illlnesses—particularly among the young children.  Our chapter is working with the community to redesign and rebuild the water supply in Pinalito, so that all its residents can have access to clean, safe water for drinking and daily use.
