ENABLING ACCESS TO CLEAN WATER
We are committed to helping communities and visitors across the region access clean water sources, as well as proper sanitation and waste water management systems.
Water is critical for socio-economic development, healthy ecosystems and humanity’s survival itself. However, in Asia-Pacific, 1.5 billion people are still without access to clean water and proper sanitation, with the majority of those in rural areas.
At Khiri Reach, we fight for a region where people, including local communities and visitors, have access to clean water in the form of wells, refill stations, and filtration systems, as well as proper sanitation.
We encourage active participation in cleaning up both freshwater and ocean bodies. We have seen first hand through our existing water well projects how clean water provided at very low cost not only eases the financial burden but immediately reduces illness, reduces the prerequisite for boiling which decreases the use of fossil fuels and CO2 emissions, lessens the need for single use disposable plastic bottles, and helps keep livestock and crops alive.
