Areas of Focus: Disease prevention and treatment, Water and sanitation
Summary: Install 5 septic systems in homes in a very poor area of Tecate, Mexico, collaborating with USA (Santa Ana) based Corazon.
USA based Corazon develops communities in very areas such as Tecate near Tijuana. Families earn the right to have a house built by volunteers. YLSRC has been building homes for more than 6 years now. We add a septic tank and to the bathroom, or retrofit homes as needed. The owners are identified by Corazon as cooperative members of the community, helping others, and thus we are provided with deserving families. We purchase the materials at a discounted rate in Mexico. Corazon assists us. We then go to Mexico and install the septic tanks and teach the families how to maintain them. Typically more than 20 of our club members visit during the course of the year and assist with the installation process.
This project is "Paid". This means that the funds from the district have been issued. This project is now being ready for implementation. When this is done, a report needs to be uploaded on the project page and the "Reported" button needs to be clicked, then the status of the project will be changed to "Reported".
