Clean water for DEPDC’s underprivileged children

by DEPDC Vetted since 2007 Top Ranked Effective Nonprofit Site Visit Verified


New water tanks & pumps to provide clean drinking water for 310 poor, underprivileged ethnic minority children & teens protected at DEPDC who otherwise are at-risk of being sold into the sex industry.

monthly donors


The water tanks & pumps are old, broken & leaking which will contribute to unhealthy drinking water, unsanitary cooking conditions, bad hygienic habits & risks for infections for the children, teens & staff that now carry buckets of water everyday from an old, tin tank. This project will affect more than 310 underprivileged & marginalized ethnic minority children & teens presently living at Development Education Program, which works on the prevention side of trafficking through free education.


Install new tanks, pumps & piped water system. During rainy season small tanks will fill with clean rain water & pond drained/filled with ground water; both cost-saving methods of water conservation. Children learn about water conservation at DEPDC.

Long-Term Impact

Clean, safe, available drinking water for 310 poor, impoverished hill tribe children will allow them more time in receiving classroom education, vocational activities, computer skills & even learning about drinking safe water & water conservation.

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
