Rain Water Harvesting
In this section of the website you will find a collection of RainWater Cambodia’s print and television interviews and media releases.
Please feel free to download our annual reports and take a look at how RainWater Cambodia has grown over the years – we hope you find them interesting. Unfortunately we do not make paper copies available (unless required by our donors) as this saves on costs and helps preserve a few precious trees.
RainWater Cambodia strongly supports transparency and openness in all our dealings and as such we make available a variety of summarised financial data, in addition to our annual reports, for interested parties -please contact us directly for more information. RainWater Cambodia undergoes an external audit on its finances every year and as a result of our work we have received NGO GPP certification.
Many of the pages listed here contain technical information on how to construct your own rain water harvesting system. If it is the first time for you to tackle a project like this we would always recommend that you seek assistance from someone with appropriate training and knowledge, especially when constructing large tanks. The links contained in this section of our website are to independent organisations and as such the views and opinions do not necessarily reflect those of RainWater Cambodia.
If you come across any other good websites – or dead links below- please use the contact us page to let us know so that we can update this page and continue to spread information regarding water, sanitation and development to everyone.
