  • Need


    The project will address the unsanitary conditions that many rural communities currently live in Bangladesh. It will also address the fact that many drink from dirty water sources often causing disease.


    The provision of purified water will demonstrate to these communities a healthier way of living. Training will be given to all in the communties who would like to take part. The training will consist of health and safety where sanitaion is concerned, and how these people can produce their own clean water once the project has left the area. We will also meet with local NGO's who will be able to supply for cheap materials for water purification once we have left.

  • Aims

    » Provide in depth training to key community members with regards to monitoring and helping their fellow residents about clean water.

    Provide education and awareness around sanitation.


    » Launch an awareness campaign with materials to distribute within communities to increase knowledge regarding sanitation issues.

    What success will look like

    Success will be that on future monitoring the majority of the communities visited will still be using the skills that they learnt on their training.
