Sacha Yaku: Supporting community water systems by selling art for water

An introduction to the work of Sacha Yaku and their work on the potable water system of an indigenous community in Ecuador. The project was started by two MIT undergraduates Kendra Johnson (Environmental Engineering '09) and Froylan Sifuentes (CHemical Engineering '09) through a summer public service center fellowship. After three trips to the community, the water system now serves eighteen families with a regular supply of potable water. As a sustainable source of funding for the water system, Sacha Yaku is now starting an "Art for Water" program to tell the story of Santa Ana in the United States by selling traditional jewelry and pottery to raise money for the water system.
