WASH & Women

In partnership with Rotary, Tepuy Trek is focusing on empowering women in the communities we visit.

At the last World Water Summit in Atlanta in June 2017, Tepuy Trek’s founder, Isis Mejias, spoke about the lessons learned during a Rotary program in Uganda. The lack of access to water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) affects women disproportionally, due both to biological and cultural factors. In addition to meeting women’s needs around menstrual and sexual and reproductive health, WASH is also essential for their social and economic development, contributing towards gender equality and the comprehension of their rights.

We are bringing awareness about how women’s health issues are impacted by the lack of water, sanitation, and hygiene throughout the world. Our current efforts are focusing in Latin America, in partnerships with other organizations focused on empowering girls and women to understand their human rights.
