About

Camila created the H2O Project as a water business that will provide clean drinking water to peri-urban and rural residents of Cochabamba. Camila and her team will purchase water directly from water companies and then sell the water to residents at an affordable price. The team will also train and empower women in the local communities to manage the business. Recently, the H2O project hosted a community event inviting parents - specifically mothers - to participate in painting a mural with the message "El Agua es Oro" ("Water Is Golden"). The event had 25 volunteers, over 30 children, and 15 mothers who helped to paint the message. The venture has also been hosting a shower program that teaches WASH practices and provides access to a weekly shower.
