This project provides 13,326 rural residents in three Vietnamese villages with access to clean water, which will greatly improve their hygienic and sanitary conditions.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Lack of clean water is a huge problem worldwide, affecting health, economics, and education. Roughly 2.2 million to 5 million people die per year from water-borne diseases. In Vietnam they are among the leading killers and responsible for absenteeism at work and school. EMW will build water systems in 3 poor villages in central Vietnam, providing residents with clean water piped directly into their homes. This will reduce the incidence of water-borne diseases and greatly improve overall health.
How will this project solve this problem?
1) Construct a clean water & sanitation systemwith direct connections to houses; 2) Train locally-elected water managers & project management board on maintenance; 3) Carry out hygiene and sanitation awareness program.
Potential Long Term Impact
This project will improvequality of life & health for over 13,000 people, reduce serious childhood waterborne diseases in the villages by up to 80%, increase family incomes, & improve student academic performance.
