Problem

Blue Dragon has been working in Dien Bien province since late 2011. The province is remote and mountainous with 71% living in poverty and 48% living in extreme poverty. Over 80% of the population of Dien Bien belong to ethnic minority groups. Many schools in Dien Bien lack clean water system to provide to their students. As a consequence, children do not have good hygiene and hygiene practices leading to poor health.

Solution

Blue Dragon works with schools in Dien Bien to install water tanks, filter system and pipe network to provide clean water for students. Blue Dragon also works with the teachers to teach good hygiene practices to students in the school.
