  1. Safe Water For San Estevan, Belize • Location: The village of San Estevan is approximately 6 miles southeast from Orange Walk Town. • Population: Over 3000 People • Currently Searching for a donor to fund this project! • Nearly 80% of illness in developing countries is linked to poor water and sanitation conditions. Community Information San EstevanVillage San Estevan is located 6 miles northeast of the Orange Walk Town along the bank of the New River. Surrounded by thousands of acres of lush cane plantations, the community uses the river for transportation of sugar through barges up to Belize City where it is sent abroad. Most villagers are very active cane farmers and rely on sugar cane as a source of income to their families. This community is the number one producer of sugar cane in the entire two divisions which are Corozal and Orange Walk. Since many Mestizos migrated from Yucatan during the Caste War, San Estevan has been known as a Mestizo community. An examination of the village and a water test verified that as a result of a deficient water source, the 250+ children attending the local school do not have access to clean, safe drinking water and neither do the parents and other residents of this village!
