Title: Clean Water for Iindio Community Quislag
Today 41 families live in the Andean village Quislag (Ecuador) at an altitude of 3360m. There is no public transport to the provincial capital, the energy supply barely works, and the agricultural incomes can hardly feed the families. However, the main problem is the lack of drinkable water. It can only be fetched on bold, stony paths. The project comprises the development of a well, construction of a pipe system, a collective, distributive and reserve tank, and a distribution network to the individual houses.
