About Salasaca

  • 5 Indigineous communities
  • Around 1,500-2,000 people
  • Around 100 miles south of Quito
  • Water supply heavily contaminated with Fluoride

 

 

What we’ve done:

  • Established strong connection with collaborators in Quito and are reaching out to community
  • Travelled to Ecuador on previous project; learned about indigenous communities from experience
  • Gathered as much detail about community as we could

 

What we plan to do:

  • Finish Applications so that we can travel as soon as possible
  • Establish connection with leaders in the community
  • Begin researching design options and learning more about Fluoride filtration
  • Learn and fully understand the needs of the community as well as their values and desires
