The purpose for the earlier stage inspection of this project is to let the members of delegation get to know the present situation of the project construction and the water shortage for local people. The establishment of “Water for All”in Guangnan Yunnan is to take the local people out of their plight of water shortage. For them, it’s really hard to get water and in some seasons it’s even worse. With the successful completion of this project, 206 peasant households, 1586 peasants (including 586 children) in the local area will get safe, sufficient and convenient water to drink.

Guangnan County of Yunnan province lies in the south-east of Yunnan province. 94.7% of its area is mountains, and the local people’s main income comes from agriculture. Since Guangnan County is located in subtropical monsoon climate area and its terrain is of karst land feature, seasonal water shortage is serious. Besides, there are many potential safety hazards in drinking water. In the seasons with scarce water, underground water and reserved rainwater are the main water source, and some villagers even need to purchase water from other areas at a very high price. Now our project has launched to solve this urgent problem, it will cost 127,384 US dollars and take about 12 months to finish.

Jacky Tang, Process Engineer of Shandong Rock Drilling Tools Co., Ltd. has mixed feeling with this trip, he said “Actually, we always advocate saving water, but in those mountainous areas with scarce water, the problem cannot be solved just by saving water. This “Water for All” project can solve this problem to provide water for the people who are in need of it, only in this way can achieve the goal of water for all.

Because clean drinking water is a basic right of human being, this project will be further promoted in the areas where water supply is in shortage in China. Due to the impact from global economic wave, most enterprises have chosen to spare no effort to promote the reform of economization actively or passively. Meanwhile, it is our constant policy to fulfill social responsibilities and create an image of quality employer brand with facts. Moreover, the policy constitutes a powerful foundation for an international enterprise to gain significant development in a bigger market environment.
