Communities Unite for Purewater

Communities Unite for Pure-water (CUP) is a community-driven initiative by the Global Peace Foundation Malaysia in collaborations with partners and funders. CUP aims to uplift the welfare of targeted rural and underserved communities through the provision of clean water. There are a slew of remote communities in Malaysia that have no access to clean water source. As a result, they had to consume surface water from river, wells or hilltop, which expose them to various health risks.

Our Approaches

Collective Effort

We engage and collaborate with various stakeholders such as the community leaders, business organisation and technology partners to ensure that the impact is sustainable.

Community Engagement

Building trust with the community through dialogue and multiple engagements is crucial to foster ownership of the project. Long term success is driven by local leadership.

Education & Awareness

Instilling awareness and knowledge on health and hygiene is as important as proving clean water. We identify the risk factors to the health in the community and offer necessary advice.

“Clean water, essence of life and birthright for everyone, must become available to all people now.”

JEAN MICHEL COUSTEAU
