Phase I completed: Clean water for the Mutum Yawanawa village
In 2023 we plan to go back to the Brazilian Amazon to complete phase II:
Serve not only 182 but 1200 Yawanawa people
More powerful solar system
Create salary for a water system maintenance worker
Bring water filters for other houses in Aldeia Mutum and neighboring villages
Roll out a trash recycling environmental program
Create salary for a trash worker
Clean water for 1200 Yawanawá people
In 2016 WaterNow did the first project in the Amazon rainforest. Then we went back in 2019 for the Huni Kuin. After this successful 2022 project in the Indigenous Land of the Yawanawá we are looking forward to returning in 2023 for a bigger phase 2.
Our aim is to align with other rainforest organizations, helping them to guard all their lands. WaterNow is ready to play a big role in water solutions in the Amazon as a rainforest water partner.
Chief Matsini and leader Tashka Yawanawa (chief of chiefs) want us to come back and install water filters for many other villages. This is an amazing opportunity that we are being asked for and we are very grateful being able to serve with an even bigger impact:
This is a continuation of the vision and work of their ancestors: Matsinis’s father (Raimundo Luis Tui Kuru Ãnihãu Xinã Yawanawa) and grandfather (Tata) the last Shaman of the elders.
To demonstrate what we have done in Phase I, below quantitative data show the impact for the Yawanawa people of Aldeia Mutum since we installed the filtered drinking water station.
