Field Notes

In Cambodia, hand-dug wells are a great solution for areas with a higher water table. To instill a strong sense of ownership, the community was part of the building process by contributing their time and labor. Before this well was constructed, this community spent hours collecting dirty and unsafe water. Now they have improved access to clean water, sanitation and a water committee trained in promoting best hygiene practices.
