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 southwest of San Juan along one of the tributary
rivers that make up the Lobo River lies Calantas, a small
rural community where most houses are made of bamboo,
rattan and scrap wood. Residents here work hard to earn
a modest living by raising animals, managing grazing
lands and farming. Because of its mountainous location,
transportation is difficult and expensive; making travel to
purchase goods or services nearly impossible.
The nearby upper Lobo river tributary is very important to
the village because most people go there to do laundry and
bathe. At the same time, women and children collect water
for drinking and then carry buckets or containers back to
their homes or school. A few households, and the school as
well, have electric-powered pipes connecting from the river;
but the electricity supply is not dependable. No electricity
- no water. During Project 24, Planet Water Foundation
will provide an AquaTower water filtration system and
hygiene education programs that will help change behaviors
that can improve health by changing hygiene practices.

“Hand washing is not a usual practice by most
children. It is challenging to teach them hygiene
habits since we have limited water supply in
school. Furthermore, the school has no funds to
provide soap for them on a regular basis.”
