Innovation Description

Timor-Leste aims to ensure all its citizens have access to clean water by 2030. The Lafaek Water project is using a new water treatment technology developed by Water Source Australia to help make this happen. Combined with a scalable micro-business model, Lafaek water will support 20 young people to treat, sell and distribute drinking water for communities and businesses. By the end of the project, 25,000 people, including 15,000 children, will have access to safe and reliable drinking water. It will also help determine whether this model can viably expand across Timor-Leste and into other countries, including in the Pacific. Lafaek Water is an initiative of EWB Australia and The Wise Foundation.
