Splash

Our mission is simple: We clean water for kids. Safe drinking water is the most essential life-sustaining requirement. There is no substitute - not at any price. In this day and age, in such a plentiful world, clean water should no longer be the privilege of some, but the basic right of every child.

Let the clean water flow!

Yager School
Yager School

We are excited to announce that, this month—because of your generosity and compassion—we will be installing two water purification systems for this project in China: one at Jingeng Rehabilitation Hospital and another at Jinrui Rehabilitation Center in Henan Province. Both do incredible work treating children with cerebral palsy (CP). Started by a woman whose own daughter has CP, the hospital and center treat hundreds of kids each month, many of whom reside at the hospitals for months at a time.

Until this month, the hospitals spent upwards of US$200/month on bottled water for drinking. The new water systems will provide not just clean water for drinking, but also for food preparation, hand washing, and bathing. Each water purification system uses a remarkable technology called ultrafiltration, which removes 99.999% of biological contaminants that can cause severe illness in children, such as E. Coli and giardia. Manufactured by the A.J. Antunes Company, they are the same water systems used throughout restaurant and hotel chains in China to provide high quality, safe water for paying customers. With your help, we are able to bring that same high standard of service—along with a 10-year commitment of spare parts, training, maintenance, and support—to children in pediatric hospitals in China. In year 11, Jingeng and Jinrui will take over full ownership of their water systems, plus they will have the support and knowledge they need to keep clean water flowing for the long term.
 
It is only with your support that we are able to bring clean water to these children! Thank you!!

Please stay tuned—our next update will include photos of both sites, with more details on the actual installations. In the meantime, check out another recent site where we just installed a water system in January: Kaifeng City Yager Deaf & Mute Children School. It was funded by three kids who spent three summers in New York selling lemonade to raise money for clean water in China—pretty amazing (like you)!

Our 500th Site in China!

500 Sites in China
500 Sites in China

On November 1, 2012 we completed our 500th active installation of clean water systems in China. The 500th installation was at Ganjiaping Elementary School located in Badong County, Hubei Prefecture, China. This school has 310 students and 16 staff.

Help us get to 503!

This project is almost completely funded, and very shortly we will begin installation in three pediatric hospitals in China. Imagine taking your sick or injured child to a hospital that is functioning without clean water! This should not be so, and it is a simple problem to fix!

With your help, we will install water purifications systems and drinking & hand washing stations at three more sites, and we will provide 10 years of spare parts, maintenance, training, and support, positioning each site to take ownership of its own system by year 11.

Become a recurring donor today and GlobalGiving will match your first donation (hurry while matching funds last)!!

We would never have been able to achieve these results in China without the dedication, commitment, perseverance, and grit of a lot of folks. We are so proud of our entire China team, but we also owe a lot to the China Association of Social Workers and to the China Charity Federation for their belief in us when we were a very small and unknown player in the water sector.

But first and foremost, we were able to reach this goal because of supporters like you. Today, thousands of children in China and over 225,000 children in cities and towns around the world are enjoying safe, clean water.

A Childs' Right is Moving Forward as Splash

Cambodian Kids & Clean Water
Cambodian Kids & Clean Water

Before we update you on our work in Cambodia, we have some exciting news to share: as of October 10, 2012, A Child’s Right is operating under a new name: Splash. We want to assure you that, even though our name is different, nothing about who we are or what we do is changing. Our mission, values, core work model, partners, staff, and plans for future growth remain the same. To learn more, visit splash.org/achildsright.

Why Splash?
In one powerful word, Splash illustrates the potential of clean water to make a difference in children’s lives. Kids need clean water to be healthy, to grow and thrive, to attend school regularly, and to fulfill their potential. Splash is a bold yet playful organization meeting this compelling need of kids globally. We are confident that this change is going to help move our work forward!

Cambodia Update
We're making a lot of progress on the ground in Cambodia. Our hiring process for new Health and Hygiene Promotion staff is also in full swing. Amelia, our Health & Hygiene Director, is sorting through the first round of candidates. We also are in the process of beginning two new site installations in Phnom Penh. In September, our SE Asia Regional Director traveled to Cambodia offices to meet with in-country staff. Together they visited recently constructed water stations and began annual water testing as part of our regular monitoring and evaluation program. They also spent some quality time planning for 2013. One of the things we're really excited about is establishing a sustainability savings fund program for our partners. For the first 10 years of a project, they would contribute money to this fund so that by year eleven they would have enough resources to own and care for their own water systems and stations. They would also know, first-hand, how to sustain clean water beyond 20 years.

Stretch Your Donation

Don't forget that this Wednesday, October 17, is Bonus Day on Global Giving! All donations given on Wednesday will be matched 30%!!!

Thanks so much for your ongoing support.
