Summary

Trailblazer's mission is to improve health, food security, education and economic development in Cambodia's Siem Reap Province. Our first priority is the health of our partner villages. Our health program focuses on providing water filters, wells and latrines to poor rural families. In 2018, we want to construct and distribute water filters to 450 rural families (with an average of five people per family); drill wells for 100 Cambodian families; and provide 50 families with a latrine.

Challenge

Most people are aware of the direct connection between good health and the ability for a person to prosper. In Cambodia, a country of fifteen million people, there are more than nine million cases of diarrheal disease annually, estimated to cost the nation about $448 million a year. Ways to combat these diseases is to provide access to clean water and to improve hygiene. Trailblazer's Health program primarily focuses on providing clean water and constructing latrines for families and villages.

Solution

Water-borne diseases are the greatest health threat in Cambodia's Siem Reap province. Trailblazer provides access to clean, healthy water by building latrines, digging wells to access water and constructing and delivering bio-sand water filters to purify the water (both surface water and well water). Well water is cleaner than surface water, but still not always safe to drink. Rural villagers typically use the well water for their gardens, which improves a family's food security, as well.

Long-Term Impact

In 2018, Trailblazer expects to construct and install a minimum of 450 water filters, drill 100 wells and build 50 latrines for families and villages in Cambodia's Siem Reap province (one rural family has a provincial average of 5 people per household). With improved health, children are able to attend school, parents have enough time and energy to work in the store, the home, or the field, and families can live a fuller, happier life.
