The project is to provide fresh, cold water to students in the summer months of extreme Paraguayan heat without air-conditioning. Two initial fountains have been installed and scaling the project in Paraguay to 10-20 schools, possibly further in South America, is the next phase. The local club in Paraguay (Rotary of Luque, Paraguay) advised that student attendance was low due to not having cool drinking water. The initial project took place in 2018 followed by a trip to Paraguay by Vinings Cumberland Rotarians to see the fountains and meet Luque, Paraguay Club Rotarians. The desire is to scale the project to additional schools in Paraguay and this will be dependent on funding.
