Ecofiltro, a social enterprise, began as a foundation over 30 years ago where it focused its rural activities on nutrition, water and sanitation. Only in 2009 did Ecofiltro become an S.A. (for-profit company) in order to expand its capacity and reach a larger number of families with clean water– there are nearly 1 million families in Guatemala without access to safe water. The social objective, to provide sustainable clean water to 1 million rural families in Guatemala by the year 2020,  is at the heart of the enterprise and is the primary reason the company exists.

We have teamed up with the Maya Relief Foundation to bring clean water to every public school in rural Guatemala by the year 2020.
