The increasing scarcity and poor quality of local water supply for consumption negatively impacts the health of many communities in Honduras. To increase water access and quality for rural families in Honduras, the La Federación de Juntas Administradoras de Agua y Saneamiento de Morazán Yoro (FEJASMY) develops the administrative and technical capacity of 16 water management boards to manage their potable water systems and provides purified water delivery through a paid service. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to strengthen governance in Honduras. FEJASMY’s activities bolster efforts to counteract environmental degradation and protect the natural resources that communities depend on.
This grant is part of our broader initiative to support economic prosperity, democracy and governance consistent with the U.S Strategy for Engagement in Central America.
