Project Aqua Tower: Cambodia
Through the Planet Water Project a group of volunteers from international water services company, Xylem, constructed a water tower providing clean fresh drinking water access for the whole community in a rural village in Cambodia.
Telling the story through the eyes of two characters, an American volunteer and a Cambodian student, the experience highlights the human impact of such projects and increases the level of empathy felt with the audience.
Using Virtual Reality in this way immediately puts the viewer in the shoes of both characters. Through experiences like this one it is hoped to increase engagement of volunteers as well as potential funders for NGO’s and Charities. This experience was showcased at the International Water Week 2018 in Singapore.
