To provide safe drinking water to all Public School Students on Koh Samui.
During visitations to Koh Samui Schools for our Rotary Sustainable gardening project, it was brought to our attention that each school was lacking clean drinking water.
Without any budget to install or maintain certified water purification systems, these schools were using much needed money from other school budgets to purchase and provide an INADEQUATE supply of bottled water to the students and also for cooking.
This has lead to students drinking contaminated water causing illness (all ground water on the Island is contaminated and many samples contain virus).
This project is to provide an adequate supply of safe drinking water to all public schools by installing certified water purification systems and, by introducing vending machines for each system, the project aims to be more sustainable by selling clean water to the school families and communities, thereby extending the Project reach and impact.
The income from sale will support the cost of spares and media for the system in future years.
Each system will include a 3 year contract of service and maintenance by trained Private contractor.
Our Project will also promote Hygiene education.
