Supporting Community Water Systems by Selling Art for Water

An introduction to Sacha Yaku and its work on the potable water system of an indigenous community in Ecuador. Sacha Yaku is now starting an "Art for Water" program to tell the story of Santa Ana in the United States and by selling traditional jewelry and pottery to raise money for the water system. The program was started by a pair of MIT undergraduates in 2006 (Froylan Sifuentes ChemE '09 and Kendra Johnson 1E '09).
