Water, Bathrooms, & Wash Stations

In rural Cambodia, millions of people lack access to safe drinking water and basic hygiene. At Become More, we are committed to tackling these challenges head-on. Through strategic installations, we place bio-sand filter systems at the heart of villages – schools. Our water systems have the capacity to provide safe drinking water for over 800 people, resulting in a reduction in infant mortality, protection against waterborne diseases, and an overall improvement in community well-being.

To ensure the long-term sustainability of these systems, we work closely with community leaders, providing support for proper management and maintenance of each water system.

We also prioritize hygiene, providing crucial facilities and education in each village we support. By equipping schools with handwashing stations and bathroom facilities, we empower every child to adopt and practice good hygiene habits. This serves as the foundation for a healthier future, not only for the children but also for the entire community.

Join us in bringing water and hygiene to the next village in Cambodia. Together, we can provide the necessary means for the next village to Become More.

Dental Health

Oral health plays a vital role in overall well-being, but individuals in rural Cambodia have limited access to dental education and products. At Become More, we bridge this gap by providing essential education, dental products, treatments, and restorative care. Guided by our Director of Dentistry, Dr. Spencer Elmore, we collaborate closely with dental students from Phnom Penh to deliver ongoing support to each sponsored village. Through these initiatives, we help ensure that each villager has sustainable access to crucial dental services, significantly improving their oral health and overall quality of life.

Feminine Hygiene

In rural Cambodia, girls face significant obstacles to education as they go through the process of development and menstruation. Unfortunately, the lack of proper feminine hygiene facilities and products often leads to school dropouts. At Become More, we are committed to ensuring that every girl has equal access to education. To make this possible, we provide comprehensive education, establish dedicated bathroom facilities and wash-stations, and ensure the availability of feminine hygiene products in all our sponsored schools. Our approach prioritizes the health and well-being of girls while promoting gender equality and empowerment. Together, we can create a future where every girl in Cambodia can pursue education without barriers, and Become More.

Prenatal Health

Become More Charity is dedicated to improving prenatal health in rural Cambodia by providing essential support and resources. Their health initiatives include the distribution of prenatal vitamins to ensure that expectant mothers receive the necessary nutrients for a healthy pregnancy. This effort is part of a broader health program that also includes access to safe drinking water, school bathrooms, handwashing stations, dental care, and feminine hygiene products. These comprehensive measures aim to promote overall well-being and support the health of both mothers and their unborn children, contributing to the charity’s mission of empowering communities to rise from poverty to prosperity through sustained health improvements​.
