Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 31, 2008
The Prem Rawat Foundation (TPRF) made a significant contribution to the Betterment of Life Foundation in Thailand (BoLF) to provide clean, safe drinking water to more than 2,500 children attending 12 schools in remote areas of Thailand. Through this project, water tanks with pumps, filtering systems and taps where children can easily get water will be installed at each school.
Somchai Chansate, director of the Bangkok-based BoLF, reports that villagers in remote areas lack access to public utilities. They use water from ground wells and springs and do not have sufficient storage facilities to provide clean water. This is particularly so in the schools, which rely mainly on rainwater, and the children do not have clean water to drink in the dry season.
The contribution from TPRF will enable BoLF to provide clean, safe drinking water to each of the 12 remote schools and maintain the systems for 18 months. After that, and through BoLF's step-by-step methodology, ownership and maintenance of the systems is given to the schools, in collaboration with the local Water Authority, to ensure that the water remains clean and safe. This model is based on the successful pilot project conducted at a school in Khon Kaen Province.
BoLF provides assistance to people to understand, realize and achieve their natural potential for a productive and self-sufficient life through the provision of basic needs, skills development and cultural and spiritual enrichment.
TPRF advances the internationally acclaimed message of peace made available by Prem Rawat, known also as Maharaji. In addition, it helps provide the necessities of life for people most in need. TPRF often partners with other humanitarian organizations to bring food, water and disaster relief rapidly where it is most required.
