Where We Work

Since 2002, WEFTA has helped make possible the construction of water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) projects in impoverished countries in Latin America and Africa.

Our engineers donate their time and expertise while partnering with rural communities on the ground in Bolivia, Colombia, El Salvador, Ethiopia, Guatemala, Honduras, Kenya, Mexico, Panama, Peru and Tanzania. By using simple, low-cost technologies, along with volunteer community labor, project costs are kept low, and community members develop a sense of ownership and commitment to the long-term operation and maintenance of the water or sanitation infrastructure.

Water & Health

Since 2002, WEFTA has been connecting donors, engineers, and communities in Latin America and Africa, all with the common goal of ensuring access to clean drinking water for everyone.

Sanitation & Environment

WEFTA engineers help communities make sound decisions and facilitate the dialog leading to the development of solutions for inadequate sewage treatment, and its associated environmental impacts. 

Development & Sustainability 

WEFTA volunteers work with the communities we partner with to develop the local skills needed to maintain and manage the water and wastewater systems constructed.
