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

"We aim to impact 1 million lives by 2013. Taking a market-based and community-driven approach, we hope to break down political, economic and cultural barriers for greater access to water & sanitation. To better understand and influence the local communities, we will continue to strengthen our regional offices and staff in Cambodia, China and Vietnam."

Water and environmental powerhouse

Led by Professor Ng Wun Jern, NEWRI Director, NTU will augment the Endeavour's efforts with the expertise, innovations, and resources of NEWRI - the environmental and water research and technologies powerhouse.

"NEWRI brings together a multi-disciplinary R&D team in environmental and water technologies (EWT). This ecosystem allows NTU to integrate its strengths and expertise and tackle environmental problems from different angles. Under the Endeavour initiative, NEWRI will coordinate the research and education in EWT and support applications through Lien Aid. Such seamless arrangement will ensure that a more sustainable and effective implementation of the projects," said Professor Ng.

Lien Environmental Fellowship Programme: from research to real world results

Under the Endeavour, LF and NTU will launch a new Lien Environmental Fellowship (LEF). The fellowship aims to seek innovative ideas from leading academia/researchers in Asia's developing countries in order to tackle today's water and sanitation challenges. These fellows must translate their ideas into successful solutions that can benefit their home communities. Lien Aid will also assist in the implementation. S$500,000 has been committed towards the LEF programme for each of the next four years.

NKF joins the Endeavour to help Vietnam

The latest partner to join in the effort is Singapore's NKF. NEWRI, Lien Aid and NKF have teamed up with Vietnam's Ministry of Health to improve the quality of water and patient care at Bach Mai Hospital in Hanoi.
