Clean and Safe Water
Lack of access to safe water, proper sanitation and effective hygiene is an on-going global health and development crisis resulting in millions of deaths and diseases that affect billions of persons annually. This is especially true in rural parts of Vietnam and Cambodia where IDE is working to provide families with ceramic water purifiers and sanitary latrines. For all families to have access to these important technologies, market participation must be improved and prices must be reduced.
Your gift will allow IDE to provide additional households with access to clean drinking water and safe latrines by strengthening local markets and redesigning the systems to make the products more affordable. IDE works to make these technologies affordable and available to local farming communities through numerous development initiatives. Your gift will be used to expand the impact and effectiveness of the water sanitation initiatives in rural Asian communities through technology advancements and market expansions focused on ceramic water purifiers, sanitary latrines and innovative rainwater harvesting systems.
