Activities: Water Project


As the activities of the Betterment of Life Foundation evolved, it was clear that access to clean drinking water was a problem in the more remote areas of Thailand.

The objective of this programme is to provide clean and hygienic drinking water to school children so that they can better the quality of their lives.

 

A)   Pilot projects: In 2006 and 2007  two pilot projects were implemented with assistance from well wishes of the Foundation.

  • Pilot project 1: Provide Rain Water Storage for Nursery Children at Baan Pasak-ngarm, Tambon Luang-nuah, Ampur Doi-saket, Chiengmai.

  • Pilot project 2: Provide Drinking Water for School Children at Khok Muang School.

 

B)   Major Programme on  "Clean Drinking Water for School Children"

The pilot projects were successful and word got around to other schools that the BOLF could help them to also obtain clean drinking water. Soon the BOLF had numerous requests for funding.

The programme has brought joy and happiness to the children, the teachers and the parents of the village schools. It has also been a rewarding experience for the Betterment of Life foundation and we have developed an insight into the difficulties that are faced by the villagers in remote places and their hopes and aspirations and the challenges of implementing of water projects.

It encourages us to continue with the work and also to seek your support in extending this programme on “Water for School Children” to other schools who hope their dreams will also be realized.



Project one

The first project funded by The Prem Rawat Foundation (TPRF) www.tprf.org was successfully carried out in 2008. 10 schools benefitted from the project.

The Coordinator of the Betterment of Life Foundation visited each selected school, and met with the teachers as well as the children (when ever school was is session) and personally ensured that each project was sound and that the funds would go to the right people.
