Mission of the organisation

Our mission is to provide sustainable access to safe water and sanitation for the most vulnerable communities in the Sierra. With access to clean water, we can impact four key areas: Health, Hunger, Education, and Poverty. The first article of our charter clearly stated that our purpose is: "Fight hunger, malnutrition, diseases, lack of work opportunities, poverty in general, in population from vulnerable economical background especially in indigenous communities, respecting their culture and human dignity". The Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice. The 17 Goals are all interconnected, and in order to leave no one behind, it is important that we achieve them all by 2030. We are aligned and work directly with: Goal 6: Ensure access to water and sanitation for all However, we aim to indirectly contribute to Goal 1: End poverty in all its forms everywhere, Goal 2: Zero Hunger, Goal 3: Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages, and Goal 15: Sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, halt and reverse land degradation, halt biodiversity loss. We empower communities to be responsible of their access to water and get a chance to step out of poverty. We improve life conditions by improving health conditions, reducing hunger, and giving more opportunities to focus on school and work. In CAPTAR, A.C. we aim to accompany our beneficiaries in attaining self-sustainability and self-sufficiency. We assist indigenous communities so that they need no help from, or interaction with, others or institution to have access to clean water. We train them on water care, we show them how to build their own rainwater recollection system and we provide them with the materials that will last for more than 30 years. Our beneficiaries become self-sufficient and empowered. With access to clean water and new construction skills, they can better their condition and overcome poverty.
