Poverty and lack of clean water go hand-in-hand, think about how different life would be without accessible clean water. Most of the daily activities we take for granted in developed countries like drinking a glass of water or maintaining a good hygiene routine utilizing indoor plumbing and drinking clean water wouldn’t be possible – yet this is still today the reality of the life of the 65% of people living in the rural communities of Vietnam. When water supplies are improved and sustainable, it enhances a community’s economic growth and reduces poverty, allowing people to thrive mentally and spiritually, stay physically healthy and prevent diseases spreading caused by a lack of adequate sanitation, and hygiene.

Planet water foundation is a non-profit organization focused on bringing clean water to the world’s impoverished communities through the installation of community-based water filtration systems (towers) and implementing Water-Health and Hygiene Education programs. The projects are focused on schools, children, and rural communities across Asia and Latin America. From 2020 to 2022 we partnered with the organization, on a three year’s journey across six small lively and populous communities in Vietnam, mostly farmers and also migrant workers. Our project specifically targeted the province of Hung Yen, where we operate and where most of our employees live with their families.

From 2020 to 2022, Hung Yen Knitting & Dyeing directly funded and assisted the installation of six filtration water towers and sanitation systems, in five primary schools and one kindergarten’s courtyard. Providing access to clean water supply for drinking or personal hygiene to 10.800 people. It is also thanks to our long-term customer Pentland Brands – which seized the opportunity to fund one more project – that the final number reached up to seven towers totally installed by the end of 2022, raising the number of those who can now have free access to the clean and safe water tap to 12.600 people.

A grounded experience and action on the territory, undertaken with enthusiasm and the target to bring an example and an opportunity, with the upfront contribution of the teams of volunteers from different departments of our company – from offices to production – whom helped with the installation of each filtration system, together with the Water Planet Foundation local team members, whom technically supervised each deployment and leaded the Hygiene Education programs with dedication and enthusiasm.

We would like to thank all who have participated to this project, joining forces and contributing with their own resources, time and enthusiasm to reach the result we achieved.

We believe that planting a small seed of welfare may help to build a different perspective for each kid, teacher and member of the community and the opportunity to learn that giving value to something simple such as drinking a glass of safe water, or washing your hands with clean tap water means indirectly to give importance to improve the quality of life of a person, as much as of whole community.
