Havurah Shalom recently committed to work with Green Empowerment in El Jocote Nicaragua to bring a new water system to the community. Residents of El Jocote currently uses a hand pump to reach their water source which can be time consuming and difficult. A solar installation will pump water into a cement tank at a high point in the community from which gravity pulls it to resident’s homes. In addition to the renewable energy infrastructure, Havurah Shalom also plans on assisting in organizing a health assessment before and after the installation of the system.
