Implemented by Fundación PLAN, this program benefits from the active participation of the Aguas de Tumaco E.S.P utility, the Municipality of Tumaco, and the local community, who contribute money, technical assistance, and in-kind services. ConvidArte also counts on the active participation of the talented artist groups that carry out our Social Art for Behaviour Change (SABC) interventions: Agencia de Comunicaciones del Pacífico (ACOP), Maestros del entretenimiento, and La Guagua.

ConvidArte is part of the Lazos de Agua Program, a multi-stakeholder partnership of One Drop, the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), The Coca-Cola Foundation and Fundación FEMSA. With a total financial commitment of US$ 25 million from these organizations (US $10 M from One Drop) and complementary investments for a similar amount from national and local governments and the communities, as well as from executing partners, Lazos de Agua seeks to provide sustainable access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene to around 200,000 people in Colombia, Guatemala, Mexico, Nicaragua and Paraguay by 2022.
