The Pampoyo Project
The village of Pampoyo is situated at over 13,000 feet above sea level. The community subsists on farm produce that they sell in the nearest market town.
Water piped from a spring is their main source drinking water. However, a stream used for irrigation has become polluted by the waste created by nearby mining activities. The village also lacks any latrines or other bathroom facilities.
The Blue Ridge Professional Chapter will address each of these needs, in order to improve health, nutrition, sanitation, and the economic well-being of the village.
