Imagine that you are 10 years old and you are trying to study but you have not had anyting to drink for hours ...... This is the situation we want to address. In Cambodia alone, there are 3.8 million of the population do not have access to safe water,  and 40% of primary schools face this problem which results in low school attendance rates for girls and negative health for many others. But together we can make a difference. We know a school - Bopha Foundation for Community (BFC or Palm School) located in Kompong Speu that gives over 120 children free study English & Chinese lessons each day. But they face the problem of clean drinking water. As a human-being it doesn't make sense that we could stand there doing nothing, right?

What is the Problem?

Water is a fundamental need in our daily life, whether for ourselves or for life around us. All of us need clean & safe water, luckily if we live in Phnom Penh city, we can get access to safe water easily, but let's take a look at some of the poor children: everyday they drink water from unsafe water supplies (ponds or wells).

"Whenever I take a shower, it reminds me that some people do not even have clean water to drink.” - CHHLAT 

Here is the voice of those that are affected by this problem: “Personally, I have sore throat after drinking water, some children did too, but the common illness they get are fever and diarrhea. If we keep drink this water, we will develop to have kidney stones in the future. Apparently, kids in the photos, they have big belly, this should be the cause of many unknown bacteria in the water” - Bopha

Here is a link to Palm School' Facebook page so you can reach out for more information.

What is Our Solution?

Seeing this problem, CHHLAT committed to help the children of Palm school by donating 2 water filter tanks, but these won't last forever, because the filters will wear out due to extensive use. The best solution we have identified, is therefore to build a natural water purification system that costs about 600$, but our budget is limited, so we need your contribution. 

Who We Are:

CHHLAT is a newly created company that focuses on changing people’s behavior in an easy and economic way: we distribute eco-friendly bottles that can be used day after day with the CHHLAT water machine that students can refill at school. Please visit our Facebook page for more information.

Our efforts have recently been recognised by 2 powerful entrepreneur groups such as the Impact Hub and Cellcard-Lab. 

http://phnompenh.impacthub.net/catch-up-with-cellcard-lab-winners/

One of the key values of our brand is to make an impact on communities. For this we have been focusing on helping one school that shares our ethical and ecological approach, the Palm School in Kompong Speu. It is in partnership with the school and its lead members that we have come up with the idea of a water purification system.

What We Will Do:

We will provide the water system and help to set it up on site in the Palm School in Kompong Speu. The School has 120 students and with this system, we can help them get daily drinking water. We will follow up on the use of the system and make sure it is well maintained by the school so that its use can be sustained for life time. 

If we manage to raise more than 600 usd (for one system), we will simply scale up to many other schools or communities that can't access to clean & safe water. But this can happen only we - Khmer together to help them, so we really count on your support.
