Successful WW! sanitation program in a floating school in Cambodia

ជំរាបសួរ! Hello friends!

In March 2016, Wetlands Work!, in cooperation with the World Toilet Organization, conducted the first pilot Hygiene Awareness Class in Cambodia.

Eighty students from Yukhuntor Primary School, Kampong Chhnang Province attended the class taught by Mr.Hakly and Ms. Solyka from Wetlands Work.  The hygiene lesson included an introduction to the transmission of pathogens via faecal-oral route, proper hand-washing techniques, and good hand-washing practices via sing-along music videos.

StartSomeGood Campaign – Thank You!

Hello friends,

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the success of this campaign. With your help, we were able to double our initial goal of $8,000 and reached our ultimate goal of $20,000, including non-StartSomeGood donations! This means we will be able to build wastewater treatment systems and conduct WASH classes at four Cambodian and one Bangaladeshi floating schools. Keep an eye on our website and Facebook page for further updates to this project. If you would like to contribute further, our website now has a Paypal donation button, and you can always feel free to contact the WW! staff for other ways you can get involved. Thanks again!
