 Argentina Rainwater Harvesting Project 2012 – 2013

     Current water source for some communities in                  

Las Lomitas, Santiago Del Estero, Argentina

 

Pay It Forward Project travelled to Argentina in September 2012 on their first assessment trip to assist 30 families in the northern providence of Santiago del Estero with a harvesting rainwater project. This region of Argentina is extremely dry and as the groundwater is contaminated with arsenic and heavy levels of salt, the community is resorting to using water from a manmade pond. This is also an unsafe water source as it is unhygienic and full of bacteria and other impurities. Unfortunately the area was so remote that transportation logistics and time did not allow us to reach the precise community of Las Lomitas in order to do our first site visit. We took the opportunity to partner with Silvia Sternberg founder of Dar Otra Oportunidad (Give Another Opportunity) who has working knowledge of the communities and introduced us to their plight.

   Joplin, Missouri  PIFP Tornado Relief Efforts

 

 

 

Pay It Forward Project was honored to embark on our first domestic project by helping Irving Elementary School in Joplin, Missouri as they recovered from the devastating tornado (multiple vortex EF5 rating) that ravaged the city on May 22, 2011.  Irving Elementary which was destroyed during the tornado was leveled mid December with mixed emotions from all that had called it home.
 
Irving’s students and faculty, many of whom we got to know during our 10 days spent together last August, have an unstoppable “can do” spirit of perseverance.  The school was relocated to another facility named “Washington” and with several trailers set up with classrooms they rolled up their sleeves, worked side by side and lived up to their commitment to open school on time on August 17, 2011, a mere 86 days after the tornado struck and changed so many lives.  We were thrilled to be there with them when they did so!  The NEW “Irvington” is thriving!
With the wonderful support of our donors Pay It Forward Project was able to equip a 3rd and 5th grade classroom with IT supplies to start their school year off in fine fashion!

  Haiti PIFP Earthquake Relief Efforts
 

Pay It Forward Project returned from our first assessment trip to Haiti which was both eye opening and awarding.  Life is moving forward for the Haitians but there is so much need that still exists as the people cohabitate with visible destruction at every turn.  We appreciate your patience as we maneuver the balance of coming back home to our full time jobs & responsibilities and will have our stories and pictures available shortly.

Salvador PIFP Donates Eye Surgery for a remarkable Lady!
This particular program is the one that holds a special place in our hearts and is the one we are most grateful for being able to realize. We met Delores Ortiz in 2006 when we were distributing rice and beans to families in the community of Armenia. This diminutive lady of 70 years and not more than 4'9" gave our Founder Denise Bobba a bear hug of appreciation that almost took Denise's breath away! Delores is the sole bread earner for a family of 5 as her daughter was unable to work due to a serious illness that she unfortunately succumbed to 2 months after we left El Salvador in July of this year. Delores is now raising her 3 grandchildren by herself.
