Conclusion of Kandieng High School Water Project – Cambodia


Conclusion of Kandieng High School Water Project – CambodiaThis project has been successfully completed under the direction of Peace Corps Volunteer Diana Wong. To see the history of the project CLICK HERE.

The project was to connect the village’s main clean water supply, to 6 outlets on the school premises. The school was able to accomplish much more within the allocated budget.

Peace Corps Volunteer Diana Wong reports on the project:

The Kandieng High School water pipes are connected and the School Director, Mr. Phay Leng, has turned on the water!

It took 15 students over a period of 4 days to dig the trenches, lay the piping and seal off areas with cement. Over 250 meters of pipes were laid throughout the school, connecting to the girls bathrooms. Including the girls bathrooms, there are now a total of 14 outlets around the school.

Further, we purchased extra pipes and valves to connect the Secondary school with running water. Once the male students have completed their summer classes, they have plans to connect the pipes from the high school to the secondary school, located on the same piece of land as the high school. This should be completed by mid- October.

Diana reports on reaction of the school to the project:

The bathrooms are now a lot more pleasant to use and the boys living at the school are very excited about the clean water. The school director is very happy with the project, and said that it came at a good time, as school will start in about a month!

We are grateful to Diana and the school and community members involved in carrying out such a fine project in a timely manner.

We also wish to thank The Soneva SLOW LIFE Trust for providing the funding for this successful project.
