"Clean Water Changes Lives"
This June, Team Aqua from Youth Corps Singapore, together with volunteers from 'Engineering Good" and Cambodian Youths, travelled to Sre Chea Khang Cheung Commune in Kampot Province, Cambodia; where the local households and school children lack access to clean drinking water, and have limited knowledge about the importance of good WAter and Sanitation Hygiene (WASH) habits.
Through our 10 days journey (http://engineeringgood.org/2016/06/20/we-are-team-aqua-reflections-on-our-water-for-cambodia-trip/), we supported the community through installation of rainwater harvesting systems to increase their access to a clean drinking water source. We also followed up with the previous group of youths on the rainwater harvesting system installation, donation of water filters, and awareness-raising activities for the households and schools to instil the importance of good WASH habits.
The funds raised will be used to support the program where the local community will continuously benefit from the better health and productivity through access to clean drinking water, and better understanding of the importance of good WASH habits. By ensuring the continued usage, this will lead to poverty reduction and improve living conditions.
"Clean Water Changes Lives". Do partner with us in giving this local community a changed life and improvement to their living conditions.
Thank you for your time, partnership and generosity!
About The Charity
We are a singapore based non-profit organization that champions inclusivity for disadvantaged communities through engineering and technology solutions. The 2 communities that we focus our efforts on are persons with disabilities (PWDs) and low-income families.
Our work is centred around 2 core areas:
1. Digital inclusion where we provide refurbished computing devices to needy families, conduct digital literacy training to equip the community with know-how and run free laptop repair clinics in the rental HDB blocks.
2. Assistive Technology where we develop low cost and effective solutions to help PWDs overcome their daily challenges and live a life of independence and opportunities.
