Hansgrohe, the German sanitary fittings manufacturer, has recently announced a collaboration with World Vision Organisation to assist in their Area Development Programme (ADP) in Hpa-An, which is located in Myanmar’s Kayin State.
The aim of the ADP is to improve the quality of life for children, by meeting the need for clean and safe water. For the programme, Hansgrohe donated $8,500, which will go towards the construction of two wells located near to a school, the building of a toilet in a primary school as well providing support for safe drinking water resources such as the renovation of wells and paying for sanitary materials.
“We do our part annually in a small but meaningful way in giving back to society, and with this effort, we always aim to improve quality of life by providing a safe environment to dwell in, especially for the children,” said Winnie Quek, Regional Marketing Communications Manager of Hansgrohe.
The goal of the ADP is not only to improve quality of life in the target communities, but also to enhance their capacity to identify and address basic needs by using available resources appropriately, leading to more sustainable development.
The project is expected to be completed in September 2018 and World Vision and Hansgrohe said that they hope that Hpa An will have achieved self-reliance and made a significant move towards sustainable change.
Hansgrohe was founded in 1901 in Schiltach, Germany and has operations in Myanmar.
