Abundant Water is a WASH organisation based in Laos, Timor Leste and Australia. We support small business development through sales and marketing of clay pottery water filters. We manufacture and distribute clay-pot water filters to vendors who can market them and sell them for a small profit to rural people who need an affordable solution to a lack of clean water. This empowers the vendor and stimulates local economies as well as bringing about sustainable improvements in rural peoples’ health.  Abundant Water has trained many potters to make the clay pot filters, has nurtured a group of vendors and provided clean drinking water in rural and remote communities in Laos.

We have hosted many interns including SAFAD volunteers. We are looking for a volunteer to join our team in early 2022 for a 4-6 month placement with the following responsibilities:

  • Technical: Supporting business development and expansion of vendor network, development of expansion and support plan, data analysis and database upkeep
  • Programme development: Developing tools to support vendors and analyse customer satisfaction
  • Communication: Writing blogs, case studies and reports
  • Logistics: Procurement of materials and Admin support
