Abundant Water delivers health and hygiene benefits by using the power of social business to design and develop sustainable and scalable clean drinking water projects.
Laos has an abundance of water - however, a large proportion of the population live in remote villages without access to a reliable supply of clean drinking water.
In April 2015 after the Nepal earthquake we were approached to introduce our training program to aid the country's recovery.
Abundant Water arrived in Timor-Leste in November 2018 through support from Rotary Australia World Community Service (RAWCS) and our in-country partner, Fokupers. We were awarded an Australian Aid Friendship Grant in late 2018 and have used this opportunity to kick-start our pilot project in Timor-Leste.
To date, we have installed 49 filters in 5 schools, distributed 200 filters to our partner organisation Fokupers, sold 47 through private sales and distributed 702 filters to the eight vendors that were trained in early July. Our filters have reached over 5000 beneficiaries to date as our impact continues to grow.

We are always looking for volunteers to help us fulfill our mission. Abundant Water seeks volunteer interns hoping to gain hands-on experience in some of the most pressing real world development issues. Interns will be involved in a variety of tasks while learning about some of the challenges and rewards of working in a developing country with limited infrastructure.
