Peru’s New President Promises Water for Poor

President Ollanta Humala

Peru’s newly inaugurated president, Ollanta Humala, was elected on the campaign promise of sharing Peru’s economic prosperity with the nation’s poor. Among his pledges are access to clean water and sanitation facilities in the poorest communities throughout Peru.

For many Peruvians, the benefits of Peru’s economic boom has failed to trickle down to them. If President Humala can deliver on his goals of investing in sanitation, infrastructure, and education, his terms as President could usher in a new era of relative prosperity and opportunity for those who’ve waited so long.
