Safe Water for a Rural Project in Valenzuela, Paraguay

The project is located in 20-hectare property in the District of Valenzuela, in the Department of Cordillera. The water is supplied by an 80-meter-deep artesian well.

The main activity is the production of organic agricultural products which include honey, milk and cheese. These products are marketed in the capital Asuncion.

The well was originally equipped with a submersible pump that allowed the supply of water for drinking and other household uses or the project and the neighborhood. The water was also used for irrigation and milk production.

Funding was needed to increase the depth of the well to 100 meters and restore the pump so that the water supply can be enough for all the needs.
