Sister Water Project Seeks Volunteers for Service Trip

Jan 18, 2024

The Sisters of St. Francis of Dubuque are seeking volunteers for a service trip to Honduras with the Sister Water Project July 22-August 1, 2024.

The Sister Water Project Service Team will help make potable water accessible to people in the rural village of Lavatorio, Yarula, La Paz.

Team members must be 21 years old (or 16 and older if traveling with a parent/guardian); capable of physical work at high altitudes; and be willing to participate fully in the work, prayer, and team building of the daily schedule. Team members will also need to have a passport that will still be valid at least six months after the end of the trip. Travel insurance and the appropriate vaccines are highly recommended.

The cost is expected to be $1,500—which may vary depending on the number of participants. The service trip fee includes round trip travel (ground and air from Dubuque to Honduras), food, and lodging in Honduras.

For more information about the trip, contact Sister Maureen Leach at (210) 621-5755. or To apply for the Sister Water Project service trip to Honduras, email Stacy Francois at for an application. Applications are due by Friday, March 22, 2024.

The Sister Water Project was launched by the Sisters of St. Francis in 2006 to bring clean water to villagers in Tanzania and Honduras and has completed/restored over 400 well projects in Tanzania and 50 water systems have received funding from the Sister Water Project in Honduras.
