Most people are aware of the direct connection between good health and the ability for a person to prosper. In most developing countries, it is as simple as children being able go to school when they are healthy, and parents having enough time and energy to work in the store, the home, or the fields. Water-borne diseases are the greatest health threat in Cambodia's Siem Reap province.
In 2017, we drilled 117 wells, seventeen more than our goal. Each new well owner participated in one of our twelve planned group trainings, where we taught them how to maintain and repair their well. With each well serving one family, and with an average family size of 5 people, our wells directly benefited 585 people.
Trailblazer is pleased to partner with Mad Monkey and their Clean Water Project drilling wells in the rural areas around Siem Reap.
