Samne is situated on the western slopes of the Andes highlands in Peru. The community is made up of 167 households including 800 people. Their water situation is very interesting. During the dry season, Samne has plenty of water to go around. This is because their water source is groundwater that is replenished by irrigation water from farms above the catchments. However, during the rainy season, farmers only rely on rainwater to irrigate their crops, thus eliminating a large portion of Samne's water supply. Read on below to learn more about the community, their needs, and our Chapter's progress on this important project.
