Turn selling safe water into a way out of poverty for women in Cambodia
Working through local partner organisations, this ground-breaking project will support women to set up viable enterprises to purify and sell safe water in Kampong Thom and Kratie provinces.
With your support we aim to:
- Empower women to start their own clean water businesses and lead on improving hygiene in their communities;
- Improve community health by promoting good hygiene and providing innovative, safe water solutions powered by solar energy;
- Make clean water, good hygiene and disaster preparedness priorities for communities and local authorities.
Who will benefit
Around 22,600 people, including 1,600 children, will directly benefit from improved hygiene knowledge. Additionally, 13,500 people will enjoy low-cost, safe water from nine water plants, and the 27 women who run their own businesses will earn improved incomes and have higher status in their communities. Approximately 50,000 people will indirectly benefit from the public health messages promoted through schools and radio programmes, as well as greater local authority investment in disaster preparedness measures.
