Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Health, International, International Relief, Public Health

Mission: The Christopher Robert Project believes that everyone regardless of social stature should have access to public health advisories and that access to safe water can create opportunities for good health and empowerment. In our vision of a lifetime of safe water for Thailand’s remote villages, our sole mission is to disseminate public health information and provide a safe water solution for all. Across the globe great corporations, nonprofits and religious organizations are drilling bore holes and shallow wells in an effort to bring water to areas of great need. However, it’s important to remember that having access to water is not the same as having access to “safe” water. That’s where Jungle Water comes in. Jungle Water recruits interns to assist in meeting the goals of the CR Project. Your Jungle Water internship guarantees you a lifetime opportunity to live comfortably and work directly with hill tribe villages in remote locations. Your work will directly help an underserved demographic attain their humanitarian right to safe water access. Our internship program is carefully crafted to include wellness opportunities under the supervision of campus Doctor of Chinese Medicine with optional daily empowerment talks, meditation, monk chat and Thai language. Throughout your internship you will gain strategies for a healthy balance of service, education and discovery.

Target demographics: hill tribes attain their humanitarian right to safe water

Direct beneficiaries per year: 6 villages

Geographic areas served: Chiang Mai, Thailand

Programs: Jungle Water Internships

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.

thecrproject 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.

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.

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.

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!!

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.

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 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.
