Dear Friends and Project Supporters,

These days, people spend thousands of dollars trying to re-create the feel of a rainforest sun shower in their bathrooms. Ironically, the people who actually live in the rainforest have a somewhat simpler request: they'd like a toilet.   While some people are disappointed if their bathrooms lack granite countertops, jetted tubs and heated towel racks, families of Yomybato in the Peruvian rainforest would be happy to have running water.  

Rainforest Flow has successfully brought clean water to the village of Yomybato. Now we have a new goal: to build sustainable, sanitary bathrooms at the village school and individual homes. By giving the school children and families the luxury of a toilet and a sink, and teaching them how to use and maintain them, we're giving the greatest gift of all: dignity. 

The next time you turn on the faucet to brush your teeth, or wake up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom, try to imagine what it would be like to live without it. Think about how amazing it would seem to someone who's never had it before. Then do something really incredible, and help give it to them.

Thank you for your generosity!

House of the Children projects in Peru are developed under the name Rainforest Flow.
