RainWater Cambodia has its head office in Phnom Penh, Cambodias capital city. We don't have any branch offices, instead we work directly with target communities in communes and villages during our projects.
So far we have been working throughout 15 provinces in Cambodia including Phnom Penh city, Kandal, Kompong Speu, Takeo, Kompot, Kep, Kratie, Kompong Cham, Kompong Chhang, Pursat, Siem Reap, Battambang, Kompong Thom and Bunteay Meanchhey province.
In Cambodia there are many areas where ground water is not accesible or the ground water quality is not safe to drink. Surface water sources can be sparsely located requiring people to travel long distances to access water, which is often of very poor quality, especially in the dry season. However the average annual rainfall across Cambodia is high enough that rain water harvesting can be a very viable alternative.
Our Household systems focus on a modular system using reinforced concrete rings chosen for its simplicity of construction and replicability. The participatory nature of how we build encourages beneficiaries to contribute labour, materials and system ownership. It also ensures that those who receive a system really understand how it works and how to maintain it. Beneficiaries are fully involved in determining where the new roofing materials and tanks will be located.
Comprehensive education and training is also provided covering hygiene awareness, system operation and maintenance.
