Who We Are

Sharing the strongest of bonds with partner communities.

Covalent bonds are the strongest bonds in nature. The second strongest are the ones we share with our partner communities.

We are a nonprofit social enterprise leveraging market-based solutions to water security that delivers sustainable, life-changing results.

Much like hydrogen and oxygen need one another to make water, Cova relies on successful partnerships to provide comprehensive safe water solutions to rural communities in Central America. From global funders to national governments and local communities, Cova’s strategic partnerships bridge the individual interests of these varied groups to create a shared vision where Central American communities are healthier, free from poverty and thriving.

Cova (formerly EOS International) has been providing safe drinking water solutions and community capacity building in Central America since 2008.

With staff in Nicaragua, Honduras, and El Salvador, Cova is a locally managed organization dedicated to the successful implementation of safe water  solutions through tracking, evaluating, and revisiting community water treatment installations to ensure sustained impact. Our strong partnerships with local communities, nonprofits, and governmental organizations help us expand our reach and increase our effectiveness in our mission to build stronger, healthier communities.

Mission

Cova empowers rural families in Central America with access to safe drinking water and opportunities to generate income through simple technology solutions and education.

Vision

A Central America where communities are healthier, free from poverty, and thriving.

Bold strategies and ambitious goals to end the water crisis.

By 2025, we aim to dramatically increase Cova’s reach and impact, bringing safe drinking water to two million people living in rural communities in Central America.
