Prey Sbov is a remote village located to the southeast part
of Kampong Speu Province, about 49 kilometers from the
town. The village has no water supply and the local people
are living under the poverty line, just as the other rural
villages in the area. The villagers generate their income
from planting rice, raising animals and from crop subsistence
agriculture. Most of the adults have migrated away from the
village for income generation.
Ang Meanchey Primary School was built in the village
where children from Prey Sbov Village and from other
nearby villages gather to attend school. One hand-pump
well is onsite at the school but the water is not safe to
drink; however, it is used by students and the villagers
because the do not have any alternatives.
The main priority for the villagers is to have a clean water
supply in the village and a safe water facility in the school.
Through the combined efforts of the Nelson family and
Planet Water Foundation, World Water Day will be that
day when change arrives.

“We do not have clean water and it is our most
wanted thing here. We need clean water because it
has impacted our school attendance when students
become sick because of waterborne diseases. The
kids here frequently visit the healthcare center for
abdominal pain treatment. Our students have poor
knowledge regarding good hygiene practices. I am
so glad to hear that our school is selected as one
among the Project 24 in the Province - this will help
us to improve our school attendance and also help
the villagers here.”
