Are You A Champion?
Though they look ordinary enough, the people in this picture are champions. In 2008, they committed to building the first community based solar powered water system in Zacamil Dos, El Salvador. With the help of CoCoDA, they and the community designed, funded and completed one of the most sustainable water projects in Central America in 2010.
This project took one of El Salvador's most abundant resources - sunlight - and gave that power to ordinary people. This project, owned and managed by the community, reduced energy costs by over 50% and made it possible for everyone in Zacamil Dos to have access to clean water.

WE ARE LOOKING FOR MORE CHAMPIONS!
CoCoDA is inviting all those inspired by people gaining access to affordable and clean water to join us in Suchitoto, El Salvador for the weekend of October 27-29, 2017 for our first Sun and Water Conference. The conference will introduce attendees to best practices in solar powered water systems and include a tour of the Zacamil Dos solar powered system.
We are inviting 25 North Americans champions to join 25 Central American community leaders to engage, learn and explore three shovel ready projects in El Salvador and Nicaragua. Thanks to generous donations from The West Foundation and Rotary Club of Indianapolis the conference is free for all those who commit to returning home to raise money for these projects.
Those interested in attending or supporting the conference can find more details and a registration form by clicking here. Or give Jim a call at (317) 503-5852.
