Success at Ban Pao Wattatakarn School

As of 29 May 2015, the children, teachers and staff at Ban Poa Wittatakarn School now have clean drinking water provided through an excellent water filtration system.


The Ban Pao Wittatakarn School water filtration system was made possible by the cooperative efforts of great people from fantastic organizations. None of these people and organizations would expect or want more credit than any of the others. They are just good people doing good things for people who in need. They include:

GOL Iluminado, the foundation which supports Swiss Activa, making it possible for them to provide water filtration systems to those who need them and cannot afford them. Learn more at

Actiwa Swiss, which donated the water filtration system and provided human resources to ensure that the system was properly installed and functional. Learn more at

The Rotary Club of Kamloops West, British Columbia which donated 28,000 baht to cover the expenses of preparation and installation

The Rotary Club of Chiang Mai Thin Thai Ngam which introduced the school and provided much needed introductions at the site.

Chiang Mai International Rotary Club which coordinated the project and provided the water filtration system through Actiwa Swiss.

Project History

The Ban Pao Wittakarn School in Chiang Mai Province is very well administered and supports poor hill tribe children. They are sorely lacking in any sort of budget and desperately needed a water filtration system. Now they have one, thanks to the fine people from the organizations listed above.
