Father-daughter duo Ian and Lauren Stevens worked alongside Lauren’s self-started NGO, Community Generation, to run multiple water sanitation projects in the Province of Kampong Speu, 70km west of Phnom Penh, Cambodia’s capital city. The project commenced in February 2017 at the Teinen Sango Capacha Primary School, followed closely by Ang Daun Teap Primary school, and has serviced over 900 students and their communities.
We gave clean water to a whole community for the first time.

“We use local masons and local knowledge and one person from each family helps with the building process. That participation is key.”
Having returned from Cambodia earlier in 2016, Ian and Lauren are eager to use their insights to help their chosen communities in Kampong Speu. The pair from Maldon, Victoria will put the grant towards projects across two local primary schools in critical need of attention, building latrines, hand washing stations and water sanitation systems.
