Small budgets and time, can be a risk factor to reach out the target of engaging those populations, as the best way to reach them will be by offering intangible services, as medical attention, or education in school matters, as well as small companies.

Therefore, donations, both in the form of voluntary work, and work, can help realise the project, and thereby clean the rivers.
