"The Water brigades provide clean water access to rural communities in Honduras. Volunteers work with local engineers and technicians to construct the water systems custom-designed for rural communities. Volunteers assist in digging trenches, connecting pipes, installing in-home faucets, and providing education to improve family health. Throughout the seven day brigade, volunteers perform physically-demanding tasks such as shoveling and pick-axing. Many of the work sites are in remote areas that require around a half an hour hike to get to. At the end the brigade makes a tangible, long lasting impact to the communities and open up the doors to more brigades such as the Public Health Brigade. The brigade usually consists of about 12 volunteers."
