WEFTA accepts general (undesignated) donations as well as donations designated to specific projects. Many of our projects are low cost and provide excellent opportunities for individuals or groups to sponsor all or part of a a clean water or wastewater treatment system for an entire community. If you would like help engaging others to join you in your effort to sponsor a project, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. WEFTA’s marketing team can assist you with creating presentations or setting up social media fundraising pages and programs to raise money so that deserving families in Latin America can create self-help, sustainable solutions to their water problems. And don’t forget: see if your company has an employee matching gift program so that your gift is multiplied!

Projects in Chiapas, Mexico
We have many projects in need of funds in Chiapas, Mexico. Specific projects are listed below. The original requests from the communities and supporting documents are at the bottom of the page (most in Spanish). Please note that the people of Chiapas live in extended families, often with three to four generations per household. Based on our volunteer experts’ observations and experience, we estimate the average family to consist of 11 members, so a project helping 400 families actually serves an extraordinary 4,400 people!
