We are bringing clean and safe toilets to the children studying in Cambodia's Floating Schools.
$20K Fundraising Goal Met
With public support, the World Toilet Organization had successfully raised around US$12,000. To help them achieve their target of US$20,000, Transparent Fish Fund donated the rest so that they could have sufficient funds to install toilets and run sanitation and hygiene programs in 4 schools in floating communities on the Tonle Sap Lake in Cambodia and Bangladesh.
Their partner, Wetlands Work! has identified 4 schools within the Koh Chiveang commune, Ek Phnom district, Battambang Province for the installation of the HandyPod system in each of the floating schools. All the schools have very different challenging issues due to on-land and floating buildings. Wetland Works will select schools that remain floating all year round.
Project Objectives: 4 Target Schools
Accountability and Progress
To ensure accountability and create a sense of ownership, one of the key selection criteria is that the school principal will enter an agreement stating that the school will maintain the sanitation system and manage its cleanliness. Installation of the HandyPod toilets will begin by the end of January.
