The Importance of Clean Water

The Importance of Clean Water

In 2016 Connect Global partnered with the Community Water District in El Tamarindo to support a plan to give water to the residents of this remote and very water insecure town. In August of 2018, Connect Global helped complete the third phase of this current plan to bring water to 2 communities near the original well that was dug. In August 2019 we plan to complete another clean water project in this area. Thank You for your support. 


Access to Water around the world is a problem

More than 600 million people still lack ready access to improved sources of drinking water.

Connect Global shares the message of Jesus through collaborative and sustainable solutions to needs around the world. One of the ways we complete this is through clean water projects. We decided to partner with the community run, Water Management District, in Valle, Honduras to come up with a sustainable solution for not only the well but a supply chain to provide water directly to each resident in a sustainable way.

Connect Global has chosen to be a part of the solution

We also hosted a team in Altos De Estiquirin in August 2018 to do work on an existing well and make connections so that each of their residents will have access to clean water. 

Our Next Water Project will be in San Lorenzo in late summer of 2019. You can come with us and help bring clean water to a community in Need!

How You can Help provide clean water to this town in Honduras

We are raising $5000 to complete this project and we need your help. Whether you can give $5 or $50 every penny counts. You can literally save lives by helping us. Clean Water can equal improvements in education, income and overall health.

In addition to clean water, our team has been able to help a local school get a kick-start to the new school year, and we also poured several new Concrete floors which will help several families by keeping the elements out of their homes.

Our Next Clean Water Project In Honduras

Over 660 Million people around the world still drink dirty water. People without access to clean drinking water become ill, miss out on school, make less money, and can even die from water borne disease.

Connect Global Water Well Project - Completed August 2018

In 2016 Connect Global partnered with the Community Water District in El Tamarindo to support a plan to give water to the residents of this remote and very water insecure town. In August of 2018, Connect Global helped complete the final phase of this current plan to bring water to 2 communities near the original well that was dug. Thank You for your support. 


As you may remember, we began raising funds to assist a community in Honduras to drill a new water well in their town around December of 2016. 

We are proud to report that we have helped complete the next phase of this water project in this remote area of Honduras. 

Our team was able to install a new tank, plumbing, and electric pump to help satisfy the needs of the community and increase their water per household tenfold. 

The team from House of Grace church in Georgia partnered with us financially as well as by sending a very hardworking team to see the completion of this project.

Thank You to all who financially and spiritually invested in the long-term benefits of clean and healthy drinking water for this community of Estiquirin, Honduras. We are grateful!

Water Well Project - Update 2018

Water Well Project - Update 2018

We are very excited to share with you a fantastic update from Honduras. 

As you may remember, we began raising funds to assist a community in Honduras to drill a new water well in their town around December of 2016. 

Many people, organizations, and churches have given towards this effort, and over the Christmas Holiday, we received the amount needed to begin making this Water Well a reality.

One of our Partners in Honduras, Jorge Amador, has been helping us coordinate with the community, hire local drilling professionals, as well as provide oversight to the project. 

The drilling was initiated on Monday, January 23, and we could not be happier to report that the well was completed. The partners in Honduras also contracted the drilling team to go to a nearby town and drill a second well. 

Over the last year, along with our Honduran partners, we developed a plan to help this second town, Estiquirin, get their well completed and water to every resident. 

In August 2018, Our Team along with a team from House of Grace church in Georgia will be there to see the completion of this project. This is a big project and will cost about $4,000. We have already received $1,000 towards the goal and invite you to invest in the long-term benefits of clean and healthy drinking water for this community of Estiquirin, Honduras. 


Please continue to pray with us as this project proceeds and we wait to see this Clean Water Project be completed!  

Together we will not only provide clean water to this town but also a restored faith in Jesus because of answered prayers. Thank You.

A Mission Trip is not easy, but we do have fun.

Through sweat, tears, and laughter we take a small group of people and make a huge difference in the lives of those needing a hand up!

Gracias por tu Apoyo

Más de 90 familias de la comunidad de El Tamarindo, Nacaome, Valle se benefician con proyecto de agua, que tiene como objetivo principal impactar directamente en las condiciones de saneamiento básico, higiene personal y seguridad alimentaria de estas familias.

Water Well Project in Honduras

El proyecto se llevó a cabo gracias al establecimiento de alianzas locales entre Fundación Agrolíbano, Connect Global, Maquinarias del Pacífico, los pobladores de El Tamarindo y el equipo de voluntariado ”Corazón de Melón” de Agrolíbano, quienes lideraron la ejecución del proyecto, que consistió en la perforación de un pozo e instalación de una bomba eléctrica para extracción de agua, bombeando 8 galones por minuto a un tanque de almacenamiento con capacidad de 10,000 mil litros y abasteciendo de forma gravitacional el sistema existente.


Con esta mejora al sistema, incrementa su capacidad en 480 galones por hora, con lo que se mejora el acceso de agua a muchas familias de la comunidad que carecían del servicio o les resultaba insuficiente.


Asimismo, el proceso es acompañado con el empoderamiento comunitario, en torno a la gestión del recurso agua desde una perspectiva administrativa, hidrosanitaria y ambiental para garantizar la sostenibilidad del mismo. La inversión total en esta mejora asciende a L 586,869.40, de los cuales Connect Global ha aportado el 37%, Maquinarias del Pacifico el 31%, la comunidad aportó el 16%, la Fundación Agrolíbano el 11% y el 5% por parte de Agropecuaria Montelíbano.

The drilling was initiated on Monday, January 23, and we could not be happier with the progress. In fact, during the first part of the drilling process, it was concluded that the well needed to be drilled to an additional depth, and the community members along with their neighbors have come together to raise additional funding in order to continue digging the well to the proper depth. 

Please continue to pray with us as this project proceeds and we wait to see this water well be completed!  

Due to selfless giving, and efficient collaboration this Well will not only provide clean water to a town but also a restored faith in Jesus because of answered prayers. 

Let's Give Water to a Village in Need

Let's Give Water to a Village in Need

CONNECT GLOBAL WATER WELL PROJECT 

A Tall glass of water—On a hot summer day there's nothing more refreshing.  The simplest of drinks can be the most thirst quenching, especially when it's exactly what's needed.  Until it's unavailable.

This is the case for the residents of the Honduran village of El Tamarindo.  Around 600 men, women and children live without regular access to this most basic life-sustaining drink—Water.

I have witnessed first hand the living conditions of these wonderful people.  Their faucets do not produce.  Their basin are empty.  Their town is dry.  In the village there are 2 privately owned water wells, both of which are drying up.  They are shallow wells drawing only small amounts of surface water, being used by everyone in the village.

Connect Global is committed to sharing the Gospel of Jesus through collaborative and sustainable solutions.  Through partnership with the local Water Management District, local businesses and local churches Connect Global is able to drill a deep water well in El Tamarindo.  This high capacity water well will be connected directly to the community's existing plumbing system providing water to every home, every family, every child for many years to come.

The community has offered land and committed to build a secure well house.  A local business, Agrolibano, has offered to provide a high capacity water tank.  Connect Global has committed to drill a deep water well and supply a water pump.  In the very near future the people of El Tamarindo will have water.

You have a part in all of this

This 100' deep well is going to cost $6500 to complete.  So with every gift of $65 we can drill 1' deep.  With a gift of $650 we can drill 10' deep.  With a gift of $1100 we can drill 20' deep.  

We invite you to join this collaborative and sustainable project.  Together we can share the love of Jesus and a tall glass of water with the people of El Tamarindo.

Thank you.
