Why We Are Here

The lack of WASH is one of the major challenges facing rural Cambodians. During the dry season, 35% of households consume drinking water from a non-improved source while 75% of households have their source of drinking water on their premises. It makes them sick and give them skin rashes due to bacteria, parasites and agricultural compounds in the water. These families also frequently lack a knowledge of the basic principles of personal sanitation and hygiene as well as best practices for food and safe water storage.

Our Goal

Communities in Clear Cambodia’s target areas lead healthier lives through increased access to safe water, practicing improved sanitation, hygiene and health behaviors, and are living in a good clean environment.

Our Program’s Approach

It incorporates five important elements guiding the development, implementation and continued improvement throughout all components of the work. These are:

  1. Working directly with households, communities and institutions
  2. Providing quality affordable and innovative products and services
  3. Capacity transferring to households, communities and institutions
  4. Coordination with government institutions and local authorities for sustainability and
  5. Cooperation with partner organizations.
