Making Impact Through Clean Water & Hygiene Education

For more than a year, we have been seeing the impact you have helped us make through providing clean water and hygiene education to nearly 2,000 children and their families in Taek Village. When recently visiting the AquaTower, the Village Leader explained, "Before the AquaTower, the school had no clean water. I tried to make aware of unsafe water to the students, some bring boiled water to school.The students faced waterborne diseases such as diarrhea and typhoid and spent a lot of money for caring. Now we have clean water system in the school, and students drink clean water and school attendance has improved. The tower has become our school hand washing station so students can wash their hands before they go into their class rooms." 

Thank you - YOU have helped us reach nearly 80% of our goal! We are still fundraising to provide clean water and hygiene education to the nearby community of Chey, where having access to clean water is still a dream. Please continue to give the gift of water – and spread the word – because together, we can also find out what having clean, safe water means to Chey Village...

Having Access to Clean, Safe Water Means...

Having access to clean, safe water means children can go to school instead of spending their day collecting water.  Having access to clean, safe water means people no longer have to suffer from chronic waterborne diseases. Having access to clean, safe water means hope for a healthy future.

In our world today, one in eight people lack access to clean drinking water. In Cambodia today, 30% lack access to clean water and 74% of all deaths come from waterborne diseases. 

Through your generosity, you have provided over 1,000 children and their families in Taek Village clean drinking water and hygiene education for the very first time. The impact that has been made in the community is unmistakable:
-  98% of students now wash their hands with soap
- The economic prosperity within the community has increased
- School attendance has improved by reducing the number of days missed due to chronic diarrhea caused by drinking unsafe water

For those living in Taek Village, having access to clean, safe water for the first time means that over 400 students and 1,000 villagers can’t stop smiling!

Thank you - YOU have helped us reach nearly 75% of our goal! Please continue to give the gift of water – and spread the word – because together, we can also find out what having clean, safe water means to Chey Village...

CAMBODIA: There Are a Million Reasons to Give Clean Water...

Over the last year, we have shared stories about the lives you have transformed in Taek Village in Siem Reap, Cambodia by providing access to clean, safe water and hygiene education to those in need. Many young women and children no longer have to spend their days collecting water, and hundreds of children no long suffer from chronic waterborne illnesses such as typhoid, diarrhea, and skin disease. 

We set out nearly 18 months ago to transform the lives of children and their families in two villages…and we’re almost there! Over a year ago, an AquaTower and our Water-Health & Hygiene education program was deployed in the first community, Taek Village, and with your continued support and generosity, we can reach our goal and provide clean water and hygiene education into the second community, Chey Village.

There are a million reasons to give clean water…they are just one.
