Summary

Thai villages seeking their right to safe water are located deep in the jungle with no access to running water or electricity. In 2020-2023, Jungle Water intends to provide primitive villages with Water and Sanitation Hygiene training prior to placing low-tech sustainable bio-sand water filters in village homes. This effort will provide the humanitarian right to safe water access for 576 indigent families residing in ten remote villages. This will empower the well-being of 2,880 individuals.

Challenge

Thailand's isolated villages depend on surface and ground-water for livelihood and need a safe water source now. Thailand's government acknowledges this and is doubling efforts to meet the U.N. 2030 Goal: Leave No One Behind. Pollutants from breached wells, outdated catchments, livestock, and hazardous chemical/waste runoff have degraded village water to dangerous levels. Villages are small and isolated, most located over rugged terrain, contributing to the difficulty of servicing this need.

Solution

Our unique and effective jungle-tough bio-sand filters bring safe water directly into homes located over rugged terrain. Bio-sand filtration removes dangerous pathogens biologically and physically and village WaSH training provides the educational tools needed for safe water practice and how to maintain a household filter. An elected village Women's Water Council mentors others throughout safe water training, filter implementation and strict follow-up.

Long-Term Impact

The long term impact of safe water and WaSH training provides huge benefits in terms of optimal health and wellness. This project will empower 576 families with the tools necessary to realize their humanitarian right to safe water access. This basic right will lead to greater productivity for more than 3,880 individuals, contributing to upward social mobility for this isolated and under-served demographic.
