Water and Sanitation Systems for Thai Hill Tribes

This project seeks to raise $12,600 per village to provide 20 families each with a bathroom, including a squat toilet and a place for bathing, and a garden, as well as hygiene and sanitation education and training gardens for the entire village.

Goal: $12,600 per village

About This Mission Project

The hill tribes in northern Thailand live in deep poverty without access to clean water or sanitation facilities. They are vulnerable to disease, hunger and the lure of oppressive systems like human trafficking. Many of the 2 million people in this region who die annually due to lack of clean water and sanitation are children.

This project will provide family bathrooms, training in hygiene and sanitation, family gardens and village training gardens. Installing toilets that keeps human waste underground will prevent starving pigs from eating it and then exposing villagers to contaminated pork.

Mission Project Specifics

This project seeks to raise $12,600 per village to provide 20 families each with a bathroom, including a squat toilet and a place for bathing, and a garden, as well as hygiene and sanitation education and training gardens for the entire village. Only local materials and cement will be used.

This project will be managed by International Ministries global consultant Mike Mann who works with the Integrated Tribal Development Program (ITDP) in northern Thailand.

It is anticipated that this project will improve village health, provide economic development through better crops and healthy livestock and introduce the love and compassion of Jesus Christ.
