Preparing to Scale

First Filter Family
First Filter Family

Meet Jungle Water's first filter family. The father in this photo is village headman, Mr. Pong. He suffers with a diagnosed kidney problem which required surgery and removal of a large portion of his left kidney. Doctors urged against drinking from the breached well that  the village depends on for their livelihood. Instead, his doctor suggested bottled water only. A village family's daily income of less than $1 USD means every home in this and nine other villages have justified and significant concerns. Although there are more living with illness caused by unsafe water, Mr Pong was the first headmen to reach out to the teams about his water concerns.So in 2016, it was appropriate that his family receive the first of 12 filters placed after attending a village WaSH training. 

The Christopher Robert Project executive team is preparing to visit Thailand to oversee expert training of new Jungle Water field teams. This training is supported by both the Christopher Robert Project and CAWST (Center for Affordable Water and Sanitation Training) of Calgary, Alberta. It is the goal of this organization to provide safe water to ten villages effectively providing safe water filtration and WaSH training and follow-up for almost 3,000 residents between 2020 and 2023.

TRAINING AGENDA AS FOLLOWS

WET for Trainers and Elections of Village Women's Water Councils

  • Fundamentals of the CR BSF

The CR Project sponsors this invitation-only event to train new field teams in assembly, maintenance and delivery of our jungle-tough household water filtration units. This three-day comprehensive training will arm field teams with the knowledge to assemble bio-sand water filters, understand the fundamentals of a biosand filter and move forward to provide the best training possible in villages. Certificate program

  • WaSH Training for Trainers

This expert training is sponsored by the fine folks at CAWST (Center for Affordable Water and Sanitation Training) in partnership with WASH SDO Cambodia, a certified CAWST Water Expertise Training or WET Center. Highly experienced WET trainers are also invited to join us in the field as we deliver WaSH training to villages followed by household filter implementation. Certificate program

  • Village Women's Water Council

Trainings conclude with a village trip to deliver filters, village WaSH training and to elect village elders to join a committee that oversees filter implementation in their village. The Women's Water Council acts as a liaison between their village and field teams, report filter issues and mentor filter families throughout the implementation process and beyond. The council attends village WaSH training and understands the fundamentals of the CR BSF. Certificate program.
