New water supply for Pocona Village
The village of Pocona is inhabited by about 180 families and is about 150 Km from Cochabamba in Bolivia where many Trentino Franciscan Brothers operate.
The project has foreseen the accomplishment of a water distribution network with a connected storage tank situated uphill from the inhabited area. The previously existing precarious and inadequate network has been substituted and completed by water supplies and the laying down of new materials in an area of about 4 Km ² above the inhabited aerea.
The benefits of the project are not only for the supply of drinkable water but also for the use of the same for agricultural purposes in order to allow for self production of fruit and vegetable produce.
The project also foresees the completion of an educational film to introduce to our community as well as to the Bolivian people.
