Shwe Taung Cement, part of Shwe Taung Building Materials, believes in community development, especially in the areas of Health and Education for the communities around the sites where we operate.
Access to clean drinking water is a basic Human Right and an important step in improving the standard of living. In March 2017, we constructed and donated a RO Machine that is capable of purifying 1,500 gallons of water a day to Kubyin village in Thazi. Kubyin’s 320 villagers now have better access to safe and affordable drinking water.
In August 2017, we built and donated a bigger capacity RO machine to Pyi Nyaung Village. The machine purifies 3,000 gallons of water a day. We also donated a 9,000-Gallon concrete tank and purified water bottles that can hold 20-litres of water to Pyi Nyaung village who has over 2,600 residents.
Shwe Taung Cement’s efforts support Goal 6 of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, which is to seek Clean Water and Sanitation for all.
