NTU and Lien Foundation launch second second wave of Environmental Endeavor
Date:3/26/2010

The Lien Foundation (LF) and the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) today announced their second thrust to bring clean water and sanitation to poor communities in the region with fresh funds, new expertise and partners, and an inaugural environmental fellowship programme.

The Lien Foundation is injecting a new sum of S$12m into the LFNTU Environmental Endeavour (Endeavour). Started in 2006, the Endeavour seeks to improve the living conditions of Asia's developing communities through technology-based developmental work. In the second phase of their cooperation, LF and NTU will sharpen the Endeavour's mission of providing innovative and sustainable solutions for those without clean water and sanitation in Cambodia, China and Vietnam. The Endeavour will be administered by NTU's Nanyang Environment and Water Research Institute (NEWRI), an eminent centre for water technologies.

Tapping the Grassroots Wellspring

Since its start, the Endeavour has reached over 200,000 lives through the work of Lien Aid, the Endeavour's international developmental non-governmental organization (NGO). Using innovative methods, Lien Aid has piloted new technologies and models of service delivery. They have initiated 38 projects across six countries (see Annex A), steadily earning the trust and recognition of local government officials at central and provincial levels. This is evident from the many joint programmes Lien Aid runs, where local officials, institutions and communities benefit from knowledge transfer and capacity building initiatives.

The Endeavour has also garnered some S$5.7m of external support from philanthropists, foundations, international NGOs, private sector enterprises and governments.

Spreading wings and planting roots

"We will intensify our efforts as a philanthropic pioneer in bringing clean water and sanitation to Asia's poor," said Mr Lee Poh Wah, Chief Executive Officer of Lien Foundation.
