Planet Water Foundation is a U.S.-based non-profit that develops strategic partnerships that support Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) efforts that align with four of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): Quality Education; Gender Equality; Reduced Inequalities; and Clean Water and Sanitation. Project 24 programs and initiatives support these four SDGs with longitudinal support in each community for five years. Project 24 is Planet Water Foundation’s World Water Day advocacy and engagement platform around the world’s critical need to solve water poverty since its inception in 2015.
Located in the lower lands of Pangasinan province,
Salincoaoet is a small farming community that faces
deep economic poverty and water contamination issues.
A deep well is the water source for the village and its
school. The water is not safe for drinking, but very few
families can afford purified water, so they drink anyway,
knowing the water makes them sick and prevents their
children from reaching their full potential.
Rice has been the most important crop grown on the flat
marsh wetlands here. The typhoon of 2015 devastated
rice crops in rural Pangasinan. The families of Salincoaet
are still recovering economically, and progress has been
slowed because swelling storm waters charged groundwaters
with more contaminants. By bringing Planet Water
Foundation’s AquaTower water filtration system here, the
quality of drinking water will dramatically change while
significantly reducing dependence upon contaminated
wells. Installation of the system at the elementary school
will provide safe water at school for children and the

“My father passed away when I was three while
my mother left our home for unknown reasons.
My brother and I are left with our grandmother
who is already sickly. She couldn’t work anymore,
so we get by each day through the generosity of
our neighbors. We drink water from the deep well
even if it is not safe because we have no choice.”
