In La Primavera, the construction of a water tank at a school has a large impact. Not only with the school it is housed at benefit from clean water access, but two other schools over 10 acres will also gain access to this clean water. The rain catchment system has allowed the school to build new hand washing facilities, as well as power their own flush latrines. The water is then disseminated via underground one-inch tubes to the other two schools, giving them easy access to fresh, clean water.
