Community Education on Safe Drinking Water, Hygiene and Sanitation

Wednesday May 8th, 2019


Cambodia, one of the countries in South East Asia, has some of the lowest rates of access to latrines and clean water facilities, which significantly impacts upon the health and welfare of the general population, especially women and children. According to WHO-UNICEF’s JMP 2015 Report, the rates of Cambodia’s rural households with no access to latrines and water facilities are 58% and 24%, respectively. These indicate a limited knowledge of community people, poor hygiene and sanitation practices and lack of access to WASH financing. To address these issues, NongHyup Finance has integrated the community education activity on safe drinking water, hygiene and sanitation into its CwE program since 2016 in order to raise awareness of the risks of disease associated with unimproved water and sanitation facilities, hygiene and sanitation basics, advantage of improved facilities and opportunity for WASH financing. In 2018, NongHyup Finance conducted 80 community education events with approximately 2,583 rural people, in which 70% was female and 30% were clients of NongHyup Finance.
