We have especially strengthened the organizational fabric, specifically in the creation of the  Water Committee, which will be responsible for sustaining the infrastructures created and their maintenance at the end of the project; Likewise, in conjunction with the community, a massive reforestation campaign was carried out in green areas and lots in the Hoja de Sal hamlet  and repopulate with fast-growing trees in order to capture and guarantee water in the area.
