About Agua Dulce
Agua Dulce is a small fishing village in southwestern Guatemala. It is located in the middle of a dense mangrove swamp and can only be reached by small boats. When we first visited the village with our local partner Amigos de la Aldea there was no electricity and people were relying on a combination of candles, kerosene lamps, and battery powered flashlights for illumination. There was also no way for people to charge their cell phones, a critical tool for connecting with the outside world. Thanks to our generous donors, the people of Agua Dulce now have clean, sustainable solar energy to light and power their lives!
Voice of the Village
“It gets very dark at night in our village and we used to have to use candles and kerosene lanterns to light our home. Now that I have a solar lantern, I can light my home and also charge my cell phone. I’m looking forward to using the solar lantern to save money on household expenses.”
