Tojquia, Guatemala, Fog Collection Project, August 2010
FogQuest volunteers Melissa Rosato (Canada) and Fernanda Rojas (Chile) were back in Tojquia in August to expand the village water project. There are now 35 Large Fog Collectors installed on a family by family basis. This is the largest fog collection project that is presently operating in the world. It produces an average of approximately 7000 liters of fog water per day, in the dry season. Assisting Melissa and Fernanda were 24 students and teachers from several countries. They were affiliated with the British based organization Round Square International Schools.
This continues the cooperation between RSIS and FogQuest and provides invaluable experience in development projects to the students while helping FogQuest carry out important construction and social tasks in the field.
