Alongside UNICEF and our WET (Water Expertise and Training) Centre partners in Honduras, Pure Water for the World (PWW), who operate in Honduras as Agua Pura para el Mundo (APPM), CAWST is conducting a water, hygiene and sanitation behaviour study in schools and communities in La Mosquitia, a region recently made famous by the discovery of the fabled Lost City of the Monkey God.
