Clean Water for Life in Laos
Help provide clean water for the children of Laos.
Clean, safe water is vital to keep communities healthy, but it is hard to come by in the remote villages of Laos. Limited access to clean water has caused serious health problems, particularly among children and vulnerable populations. Contaminated water is one of the most common reasons for the death of young Lao children.
You can help prevent the spread of life-threatening disease. The LiveGLOCAL Foundation is hiring local labor to install clean water pumps for Lao villages in need. In exchange, the community is required to form a water board to collect taxes to maintain the equipment. If the pump breaks in the first year, the contractor will fix it at no cost to the community.
This special partnership is designed to give communities a sense of pride in providing healthier drinking water, and to promote acceptance of the technology that keeps it that way. The system, the education, and the teamwork are saving lives every day.
You can help. Just $3.00 provides clean, safe water for one Lao villager.
The LiveGLOCAL Foundation believes that clean drinking water is a human right, not a luxury. It is their mission and goal to bring 1,400 families on the Bolaven Plateau in Laos clean water pumps and sanitation education by the end of 2014.
