Bakan Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Project
Project Cost – $719,269
Project Length – 4 years
Cambodian’s have the least access to water and sanitation coverage in East Asia, one of the lowest rates in the world! Rural Cambodian families are vulnerable to water-borne diseases, many of which could be prevented through clean water, and safe sanitation and hygiene practices. The low water and sanitation coverage also prevents many families ability to grow abundant vegetation although 80% of rural families depend on agriculture to survive.
The Bakan Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Project(B-WASH) focuses on empowering poor households throughout 30 villages to improve their own health and contribute to community prosperity. This project is helping 2,000 rural households to improve their health through better access to safe water supply and access to more hygienic sanitation facilities while integrating local disaster preparedness into these plans.
