Making an Impact Through Clean Water & Hygiene Education
By Kristen Steele - Project Leader
Over the last few years we have been seeing the impact you have helped us make through providing clean water and hygiene education to over 2,000 children and their families in Taek and Chey Villages. When recently visiting the AquaTowers, one of the Village Leaders 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 washtheir hands before they go into their class rooms."
Thank you - YOU have helped us reach 100% of our goal! We are still working to bring clean water and hygiene education to communities in need all over the globe - find out more at www.planet-water.org, follow us on Facebook, or continue to support Planet Water through our other projects on GlobalGiving!
Please continue to give the gift of water and hygiene education, and spread the word, because together we can work to abolish water poverty...one community at a time!
Thank you from over 2,000 children and their families and everyone at the Planet Water Team.
