1 in 3 people globally does not have access to safe drinking water.
Because clean water is a foundation of health, it can help break cycles of poverty by allowing people to focus on education and hold a job. We are committed to providing safe drinking water across the globe.
Through Vision Cambodia, we have funded more than 100 clean water wells.
Through CHOICE Humanitarian, we have built water cisterns to hold clean water in La Concepcion, Central Mexico.
Through TECHO, we are building community rain water harvesting and filtration systems in 10 rural villages capable of bringing in 180 liters of potable water a day. We are also installing 5 hand-washing stations in each village.

Since 2016, Vision Cambodia has focused on alleviating suffering and improving the lives of rural Cambodians. Their efforts have introduced clean water wells to rural communities, increased literacy through new school facilities, and aided in micro-business development.
As a partner of the ASEA Advancing Life Foundation, many of these projects will receive much-needed funding to continue. Today, 60% of Cambodians still do not have access to clean water, and 77% of adults in Cambodia are illiterate. Advancing Life recently provided funding for seven clean water wells serving a population of 1,400 people, and costs of renovation and maintenance were covered for a local school to reopen in Siem Reap. Twelve acres of land were also acquired for use as an instructional farm to boost the local economy.
60% of Cambodians do not have access to clean water. The ASEA Advancing Life Foundation has provided funding for 7 wells which will provide access to unpolluted water for 1400 people. The effects to health and hygiene will allow more children to attend school and adults to report to work regularly.
