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.
SDN 4 Lepak is located right in the densely populated
area of Lepak Village, east of the Lombok Regency. The
source of water at the school and in the households comes
from wells and rainwater that is collected in the homes.
The source of livelihoods in Lepak Village is typically
earned as farmers, farm laborers, stonebreakers & local
traders (street stalls around the village).
Challenges in Lepak are in large due to the construction
of buildings in the village. There are very narrow spaces
and access for water flow to the fields and to the wells
becomes polluted. Common negative impacts are malaria,
itching, skin diseases, and typhoid. A lack of knowledge
and understanding of health and hygiene compounds the
severity of conditions here. The hope for the future is to
have access to clean water, as well as to receive education
about a healthier and more hygienic way of life for future
generations to be healthy and smart. With a Planet Water
Foundation AquaTower and hygiene education programs,
the entire village will improve in overall health with access
to clean, healthy water.

“Parents of students, every day are busy with
their activities as agricultural laborers and so
forth. To have time with their children alone is
lacking, so the only place to play as well as produce
a child’s feelings is at school. The impact
of consuming water without being boiled is that
many students experience skin diseases, diarrhea
and some have dengue fever.”
