Will you join us in transforming the lives of 100s of students in these 2 schools with a gift this World Water Day?
Neverthirst has identified 20 schools that we hope to serve in 2019, but we're going to need your help to do it! The goal of this project is to improve the health of students through a comprehensive program that addresses the three essential components of safe drinking water, hygiene, and sanitation.
The School WASH program is implemented in rural in Cambodia. Each School has a water source, yet research found that 90% of the children drink water directly from a well or pond with no water treatment. Most of the schools have latrines, yet in the case where there is not enough; additional toilets are constructed.
The project focuses on behavior change regarding water, sanitation and hygiene practices in schools, and families. The project includes the construction of a school Bio-Sand Filter which treats water and produces up to 180 - 200 liters of clean water per hour. They also include a hand washing station, garbage kiln, and additional latrines (when required) to improve hygiene and sanitation.
The local School and Churches work together with Neverthirst’s local partner to complete the project. The Local Church builds relationship with the School community through leading the hygiene education training and follow up monitoring with the School leadership. This provides an opportunity for the local Church to serve and demonstrate the love of Christ in word and deed.
Thank you for your support in improving health for students through water, hygiene, sanitation and education and for empowering the local Church to love, serve and reach their community.

Our School WASH program aims to improve the health of students through a comprehensive project that addresses the three essential components of safe drinking water, latrines (toilets) and hand washing.
Our School WASH program is implemented in schools in Nepal and Cambodia. The WASH project provides a larges bio-sand filter for clean and safe drinking water, a hand washing station and latrines to provide improved sanitation for the students. Each school has a water source, yet research found that 90% of the children drink water directly from a well or pond with no water treatment. Most of the schools have latrines, yet 80% of the schools do not have enough latrines to meet the needs of the school children. Neverthirst is helping change these statistics with the WASH program.
The project focuses on behavior change regarding water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) practices in schools, families, and the community. The project includes:
• The construction of a school bio-sand filter which treats water and produces up to 180 - 200 liters of clean water per hour.
• A hand washing station
• A latrine block with four or six toilets according to the number of children, with handicap access, is also constructed to improve hygiene and sanitation.
• Hygiene education to change behavior at school and in the home
Each School WASH project provides education, safe drinking water, latrines (toilets) and a hand washing station to on average 600 students per school.
Our goal is to bring twenty-two WASH programs in 2019 across Nepal and Cambodia. We’d like to invite you to partner with us as we stand with the local churches to improve access to clean water and improved sanitation through the WASH program.
Pastor Joel Sophal, is married with 6 children, from Cambodia. “Before Christ I did many wrong and bad things, lot of drinking with friends. When I first heard about Jesus Christ I didn’t really believe, but later I decided to become a follower of Jesus. My child fell down the stairs at our house and was unconscious, I went to hospital and they told me my child will probably die. I started really praying to God and he answered my prayer and my son came back. I told my story to many others in our village and we started a church in our village. That one church has now grown to 11 Churches and this year we’ve started 15 new cell groups. This year I heard about the school wash project. I’ve been part of the new school projects in villages and I’ve had the opportunity to work in the school, first this has been good to help all the students and teachers get clean water and it’s also given me the opportunity to share the good news with many teachers on the school. After we finished the school project, we’ve seen our church grow with 30 year members through the school wash project.”
