THE RIGHT TO CLEAN WATER ENABLES EDUCATION
Water plays a major role in building up a healthy child. Access to clean water means healthier days for children and more days for learning in school. A child's learning can be restricted if the school s/he goes to doesn't have clean drinking water.

THE CHALLENGE
The reality is that rural primary school children are still drinking rainwater collected by jars or hand-pump wells. The difficulty in the filtration of water using handpump wells and jars might lead to children drinking unsafe water, leading them to be at a higher risk of getting ill and, therefore, skipping classes.

THE SOLUTION
OHF builds clean water systems in primary schools. For each supported school, a water system with water pumped from the underground will be built. A UV sterilizer and filter will be installed to destroy any waterborne organisms and purify water. Twenty taps are installed to allow multiple children to dispense clean water into their bottles at a time. Besides helping the primary school children, this will also benefit their family members, as the children bring home clean and safe drinking water for their families. In 2018, the UV water treatment system built for primary schools has benefitted over 4021 students and school staff!

Each water system costs S$4,600. This will benefit many young children, as well as their families.

Help us to make clean drinking water accessible to the young children in Prey Veng, Cambodia.
