The Bangladesh Clean Water Fund helps school children get access to clean water and proper sanitation, and this helps children stay healthy so they can stay in school and learn.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
One billion people worldwide, millions of them children, do not have access to clean water. For many children in Bangladesh, there are no bathrooms and no clean drinking water at or near their schools. Worse, some schools have water sources that pump poisonous water. Lack of proper sanitation and clean water makes children sick and affects their ability to learn.
How will this project solve this problem?
Save the Children educates school children on proper health and hygiene, and brings clean water and sanitation to schools by installing wells, water pumps and latrines.
Potential Long Term Impact
Access to clean water, soap and latrines helps cut down on water-borne diseases and other illnesses. Schools will see fewer children out sick and more children alert and ready to learn. During emergencies, families will have water and sanitation.
