A truly well run and well thought out project. The level of ownership that the locals have in the water projects ensures that this non profit will stand the test of time and enrich the lives of the local population long after the volunteers are back in their home countries. This is made possible by the realization that Rip and Lynn have in their fundamental principal of local participation and ownership, and is the only way to truly realize success.
Working with them stateside I would say that they are very passionate about the communities they work with. It is a pleasure to keep in touch and learn about developments with the communities.
I have supported this project since it’s inception and will for the foreseeable future.
The Christopher Robert Project affords truly life-changing opportunities to many wonderful people who both desperately need and sincerely appreciate the team's tireless support. For many years now, I have had the great privilege of following The Christopher Robert Project's inspired accomplishments; someday, I sincerely hope to support this remarkable organization in a much more tangible way as it continues its incredible mission of service.
I’m glad to be part of this great organization! Knowing Lynn for over 4 decades, I’m confident that her heart and diligent work is appreciated by all involved.
ป้าลินกับลุงริบ ทำโครงการนี้ขึ้นมา เป็นโครงการที่ดีมากๆ ทำต่อไปเรื่อยๆนะคะ
Lynn and Rip are two of the most amazing, unselfish people I have ever known in my life. Their desire to provide fresh water and support for these villages is unstoppable! They are keeping their sons memory alive by sharing their love, smiles, hugs, and tears with those who are in need! To see a child with a smile on their face or playing with a toy and laughing uncontrollably warms ones heart and to provide fresh healthy water for them to enjoy along with these smiles and laughter makes each day worth fighting for. Absolutely LOVE everything Lynn and Rip have and will be accomplishing through this organization!
Thank Brooke, we haven't seen you in forever and miss you. Consider traveling with us in April to support our public health team. Again, many thanks!
This project is so beneficial to Thailand’s needs for basic necessities! They provide education and healthcare to help with their basic needs! They have been doing this since 2012!
Barbara, Thank you for your support and for reviewing our organization on this platform. We hope you'll continue to follow us as we embark on our 2020 mission to provide safe water to isolated tribal villages.
There is truly not enough I can say about this charity... Lynn & Rip took a personal tragedy & have devoted their life to helping the less fortunate in their sons name.. The work, time, effort & passion is above & beyond... Thank you for making this world a better place
Lynn & Rip are a remarkable couple that has dedicated their life ( in honor of their son) to help others. We often take for granted things like Clean Water.. which is a necessity for life. I want to thank The Christopher Robert Project for going above & beyond! Their determination & selflessness is a rarity in this world.
Thank you for this kind review. Founders appreciate this kind review and quickly point out that our success is due to a dedicated team of like-minded professionals, volunteers and loyal individuals interested in providing safe water access for villages in dire need.
Great people who have been sacrificing there own time and money to visit villages and supply water filters for about 7 years now.
Wonderful charity, great people with huge hearts doing true good. We dont see enough of this anymore.
Thank you for this nice review Janet. You have been a loyal follower of our projects since the beginning. The teams appreciate your support as do the founders.
This is the best project that I have ever seen because it is the helpful for all people in the village that got it.
I really want to thank for all the wonderful people that had come to this project.
I was very happy to see all villagers smiled to us when we got there and they had given us a really good hospitality.Thank you to Rip and leen that form this project for all hill tribe people.
Christopher project เป็นโครงการที่ดีมากๆสำหรับคนชายขอบหรือคนบนดอยที่ไม่ได้รับการดูแลให้ทั่วถึงจากหน่วยงานของรัฐ
Thank you for this nice comment. I am having a problem getting my Thai reviews to post. Very happy to see this review.
Reaching out with love and compassion to the children of Thailand. Providing education, clean water, personal needs and the joy of learning. Please support this group as they tirelessly look for ways to improve the lives across the globe.
Thank you so much for this kind review of our project.
They post pictures of the work they are doing,so you can see first hand the help the villagers are receiving. They reach out to the public to get donated items and always post a picture with a special thank you so you know they received it. They put their hearts into the non profit and you can see they love doing what they do.
Thank you for this review! It is true, everyone associated with the CR Project has a big heart and absolutely loves what they do.
The Christopher Robert Project are a truly outstanding organization. They have brought profound aid to hill tribes living among remote villages of Thailand. Through their efforts their team have done the Lord's work in managing to not only create clean water access to villagers but also provide education to the groups of children located there. Their mission to improve the well-being of others is simply admirable.
Thank you GonzoPR for this nicely worded review of our program. We appreciate your kind words.
This is an awesome organization serving the communities to keep them safe. I am so glad that someone cares enough to continue the awesome service that they provide to people that don't have the alternative to obtain safe, clean water.
Thank you Mary for your generous donation. We hope you will continue to follow our organization's efforts and someday even visit to over-see our work in villages.
Best organization ive seen by far...helping out people in need
I truly believe this is a great start to a better future for all who are involved. So many lives will be touched and changed due to this Project. When I heard about this project, I said to myself I'd do anything I can to make sure this becomes successful!
Thank you! We are always looking for those who can support the mission of this organization.
I had the pleasure of going to Mae Jok village with the Christopher Robert Project three years ago. The experience was amazing and so were the kids, they were so excited to learn English on the iPads! Everybody in the village loves the Christopher Robert Project, they are very thankful for everything they have done. I will remember my trip to the jungle for the rest of my life.
Our English with iPads project was very popular with both kids and adults in the villages. The support we get from our villages keeps us motivated to return back time after time.
Rip and Lynn have taken a calling and made it into a remarkable life changing movement. Providing the means to offer clean drinking water and implementing true change to the hill tribe villages. Their ability to seize opportunities and execute plans makes it one of the more effective Non Profits out there.
The Christopher Robert Project is doing wonderful work for people that have been overlooked by society. Safe drinking water is a right to every human being on the planet, even remote hill tribes that live in the jungle deserve clean water. I fully support the work they are doing and hope to be able to participate in a session one day.
I had the pleasure of working with this charity in 2015 teaching English in small villages. It was the best experience of my life!
Alice, thank you for this excellent review. I assure you the pleasure was ours! I'm glad we were able to provide you an experience memorable for life. We appreciate all our rural partners in the field.
The folks at CRP aren't only making clean water a reality for the hill tribes of Thailand, They're becoming part of and helping a community. They're laying the ground work for people to be able to help themselves by creating sustainable water filtration systems and sharing the knowledge necessary to create healthy water habits.
Access to safe drinking water is a universal problem and something that is taken for granted. The Christopher Robert project is working to help villages in Thailand get safe drinking water and in the process, saving lives. The volunteers that help this non-profit are the real heroes and key to their success.
Thank you for this kind review of our Jungle Water safe water project. You are right, the volunteers are the real heroes in our organization!
The Christopher Robert Project is the number one organization out there!!! It's wonderful to see this organization not only help out with education for the village, but to provide clean water for all . I look forward to joining the organization in person and continuing their work.
Thank you Jorge and welcome to our jungle-tough USA team.
It’s so wonderful to see how many lives have been touched through the organization’s selfless and caring work offering clean water to these hill-tribe villages. I love how invested they are to their agenda and for the public to be part of their journey.
Thank you for this review Ms Salazar, we hope you'll stay for the journey!
The work the founders and volunteers give whole-heartedly to this organization is so inspirational. It's great to see their dedication and genuine love through every picture and update. ❤️❤️
We love that you can see love in our work!
Thank you sincerely.
I had the pleasure of working with the Christopher Robert Project in 2013. The care, courtesy and professionalism that was shown by the staff and founders was excellent. All involved truly have their hearts in the right place and are very intent on improving the quality of life of all whom they encounter. Lynn and Rip are two of the most generous and good natured people that I have encountered during my life here in Thailand, and I am glad to have been able to work with them during over the course of two trips delivering educational supplies to hill tribe villagers in Northern Thailand.
Thank you James. The project's come a long way since 2013 and we like to think, achieving success through failure. Our greatest assets have been talented people like you braving collapsing floors in remote villages above the clouds to help us document stories of tiny villages in need.
James, you and the photographic work you provided were amazing! We would like to host you in our villages again at some point. I remember when the headman took care of the injury on your arm in the village above the clouds! New medicine they call it. Lol!
Kai, thank you for your dedication!
Working with the Christopher Robert Project in the remote villages of northern Thailand has been the best experience of my life! I learned that Thailand's hill tribes earn less than $1 a day, which obviously places safe water out of reach for most village residents. I have seen empty water bottles and buckets littered around village homes in a constant effort to attain safe water. It's encouraging to know that villages are still happy with their filtered water after one year. I have seen both children and adults learn about safe water from CR Project Water and Sanitation Hygiene educators in the field. This small organization has quietly supplied their uniquely designed BSF units to villages with dire need. This organization will no doubt benefit from the help of volunteers, engineers, trusted advisors and university interns that will assist in placing even more filters in the coming year.
The buckets were there to carry ground water to the home daily and "littered about" is a fair statement. The buckets and containers used to sit uncovered, until needed. The CR Project's Jungle Water initiative has now eliminated the need for such containers as our CR BSF recipients now have point-of-use access to safe water right in their own home.
Rip and Lynn, the founders of the organization, are compassionate, honest and down to earth. They offer tremendous help in hill tribes villages in North Thailand, and they work very hard to raise the environmental awareness. I invite to join these great guys, share your ideas and support the local society. I am happy to be part of this project.

Dr Niko, the CR Project Board of Directors welcomes you as our newest member. Your expertise has positively impacted our organization in a number of ways already and we look forward to many years of success placing filters and providing jobs.
The Christopher Robert Project is an amazing nonprofit and group of volunteers. Their progressive changes and innovation help the remote villages and children of Thailand in ways that directly impact families in need and improve their quality of life. The Christopher Robert Project is truly changing lives and giving hope for a healthier, better tomorrow. Thank you for everything you are doing and your love and dedication to the people of Thailand.
We strive every day to give our villages a healthier, better tomorrow. Your 4 star review means a great deal to our entire team of directors, professionals, volunteers and university interns!
I can't express how amazing this organization is! I actually live vicariously through the people who do so much for the hill tribes of Thailand! One day I hope to get there and see first hand! Until then I will help support them in other ways!
We invite you and others to join us on our Chiang Mai campus at any time. We look forward to seeing you and showing you the things we are doing to provide a safe drinking water alternative to bottled water and stored groundwater. Thank you sincerely Linda.
What an incredible non-profit this project is! What they do is just amazing, the care and compassion they have for these children and families is truly beautiful. There aren't many people who care about others as much as they do and devote their lives to helping others. What a blessing they are to these beautiful people!!
Our entire team is dedicated to the great cause of providing safe water access, we appreciate this nice comment about our founders.
The devotion and hands on involvement of the Christopher Robert Project is effort that inspires. My excitement and love grows with every picture, video, and accomplishment. Thank you for allowing me to be included!
We are happy that you are excited about our project and your loyalty does not go unnoticed. Thank you.
I've known Lynn for most of my life & her compassion to help others is amazing. God blessed Lynn & Rip with this desire to assist others & it has been such a blessing to all that know them to watch and see their project grow, and to how they affect so many others lives in so many ways. I love you both & pray that God will continue to bless you as you bless others.
We have passed along your comments to the founders. Thank you for your loyal support and this wonderful review.
Not just a "flyover" charity (those that drop unnecessary supplies and leave), The Christopher Robert Project has a long-term approach to supporting their clients. Taking the time to understand the culture, and understand their needs, The CRP addresses important issues, with sustainable solutions. As a donor, I was kept informed of the progress on the water purification project, and am confident that the funds I donated were put to good use. As an engineer, I was also impressed with the clever, efficient and easily sustainable solution deployed by The CRP. It is without reservation that I can recommend The Christopher Robert Project as an efficient and effective non-profit organization.
Thank you for this fine review of our project. Supporters like you help us to reach our goals for underserved villages in the jungles of northern Thailand.
I had the absolute pleasure teaming up with the Christopher Robert Project when I was in Chiangmai Mai, Thailand. They are very passionate about bringing knowledge, culture and quality of life to remote villages.
Thank you Shane. Our endeavor to create a mural for a village kindergarten was made possible by you and your team. The mural turned out beautifully. It was a sheer pleasure to team up with you and we are forever grateful.
The Christopher Robert project is an amazing group that works very hard to supply Thailand's indigenous tribes with fresh, clean drinking water. Every time they posted some news it was to explain and reveal a new effort or project to help the tribes, which are often lacking vital supplies of clean water. They are a very honorable, selfless volunteers and it is an honor to support their efforts.
Thank you Dan, we so are grateful for your support throughout the years we've been in Thailand.
It's nice to know that our updates are being heard Dan. Thank you so much for your loyal support.
I'm proud to be part of this project and to watch it grow over the last six years. The people in the villages are very thankful for what the CR Project does for them and have seen them welcome project workers with open arms on every visit.
We have been fortunate to have you on our side full-time. You are a valuable asset to the organization. Thank you.
