The development of the private sector now constitutes one of the major focus areas in the work of RainWater Cambodia. With the high level of use of rainwater during the wet season and a growing demand from the community for modernisation of households there is strong business opportunity for local skilled entrepreneurs. As part of all of our projects that require rain water harvesting systems, RWC holds certificated construction training days for interested entreprenuers and then launches a bidding and selection process where the winner is invited to build the systems required for that project. We have developed a series of training workshops and materials which assist entreprenuers to create a sustainable business. In 2007 RainWater Cambodia began working in areas where the ground water supplies are contaminated with naturally occurring arsenic - a major health concern. Many people in these communities have the capacity to pay for formalised rainwater harvesting systems. Through up skilling the private sector and stimulating demand RainWater Cambodia is assisting customers to make an informed choice when accessing improved drinking water.
