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.
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!
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.
