Where We’ve Been Recently

Looking for information on where Novitas Foundation has been recently and how you have helped?

Mexico Water Project (NFSD 15-101)

After previous unsuccessful attempts to drill wells on the property only to hit bedrock, residents had resorted to using rainwater collected in 2 small tanks which quickly ran out. Water then had to be trucked in at a significant cost from a town around 1/2 mile away. Thanks to your support, construction of a 30,000 gallon water storage tank outside the community of San Miguel Albarradas in Oaxaca, Mexico, was completed in 2016. The new tank stores rainwater collected during the rainy season and provides year-round access to water at a remote camp serving native Zapoteco and Chatino children and teens, as well as nearby villagers.
