Cambodia filter factory fulfilling Ron Rivera’s dream

Posted by Patty Osborne

A brief report by Ron’s daughter, Ana Gabriela Power, about a visit she made to a factory in Cambodia:

Today I visited one of the water filter factory in Cambodia, the one that was named in memory of Ron. The factory is a social enterprise, and goes from manufacturing the filter to marketing it to the families and linking lower income families with micro-credit.

This is a version of what Ron dreamed the filter business would look like: although they were originally set up by an NGO, now they run as a business. At the factory there is a sculpture of Ron’s face that made me smile. Apparently it was made using the same technique that Cambodians use to commemorate kings.
