Water Storage Project

Pilas for los Tehuistes

In collaboration with Tehuiste’s Water & Sanitation Committee and ADESCO, the local community development organization, CdA has provided 60 families with a pila for water storage. A pila is unique to El Salvador and functions as a water storage receptacle and sink all at once. The pila is considered a standard in Salvadoran homes as it can store water when supply is low as well as support families in washing clothes and dishes.

The community is committed to this project. Each family pays $10, helping offset the cost of $45/pila.
