Testimony

"Now that he repaired my water filter, I can use it to collect water from the heavy rains we are having. The tank is full now and the water is clean so we are using it to water plants and wash dishes… and that makes me really happy”

“A few days ago, Gerardo and José Luis visited to inspect my water filter. Gerardo and I repaired the filter because I told him that ‘I want to have it because there is almost no water here.’ Gerardo helped me repair the filter along with Jose Luis and a volunteer. Now that he repaired my water filter, I can use it to collect water from the heavy rains we are having. The tank is full now and the water is clean so we are using it to water plants and wash dishes… and that makes me really happy”

"It’s nice to plant because they tell us that these trees will grow very tall and that they will give us oxygen to breathe...”

“My name is Rufino and I am 10 years-old. I like to go to the Amextra workshops because we play with the [educational materials] the teachers bring us and I have fun. I planted some trees with friends from my village and neighbors; my mom and dad participated too. It’s nice to plant because they tell us that these trees will grow very tall and that they will give us oxygen to breathe.”
