Clean water saves and changes lives

Support our water projects in rural Cambodia to help kids have a healthier and safer life.

Safe drinking water is a is a fundamental human right

Fresh, accessible drinking water is not available for 60% of rural communities in Cambodia. The lack of clean water forces children to trek long distances each day looking for water and miss precious time from school. Even when they find a water source, pollution is common. Waterborne disease is the second largest cause of mortality for children under five. This is an unacceptable risk that can be almost eradicated with modern technology.

A water solution that helps everyone

When we began our school building project in Svaychey village, it became clear that the desperate need to find clean water was a barrier to children going to school. So, fundraising began for a long lasting, community wide solution. To date, our Project Clean Water has made it possible for us to build and install 6 major filtration systems across 5 village communities.
