The Water for Life (WFL) programme provides rural communities with access to drinking water through the implementation of clean water technology; and enhances their quality of life via improved health and hygiene practices. The programme supports United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 6 which calls for universal access to clean water and sanitation by 2030. It also allows Singapore International Volunteers and international communities to forge cross-border friendships through better intercultural understanding.
“Having access to clean water is a basic human right, and I want to be a catalyst for everyone to have that right.”
Singapore International Volunteers Team Leader, WFL
“While addressing the specific needs of the rural population of these two districts, the SIF is also contributing to achieve global goals such as the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, one of which aims for universal access to water and sanitation for all by 2030.”
