Supporting the most marginalised children and their families to have sustained access to safe water supplies, sanitation and hygiene services and live in a hygienic environment.
Plan International Cambodia and partners work with children, families, local entrepreneurs, health clinics and local authorities to promote the adoption of clean water consumption, hygiene and sanitation practices.
We also work in schools to provide access to safe drinking water, improved sanitation, hand-washing and menstrual hygiene facilities.
Our work in this are is integrated with our programmes focused on nutrition and early childhood care and development. We encourage women’s leadership and use technology to ensure the inclusion of people with disabilities.
Since 2006, we have supported 750 villages to become open defecation free. In addition, 130 wells, 65 water purifying systems and 700 latrines and group hand washing facilities have been constructed, installed and rehabilitated at schools. More than 1,100 other wells were built in communities and at health clinics.
Our work in this area directly contributes to Sustainable Development Goal 6* on clean water and sanitation.
