Provide a School with Fresh, Clean Water


Your generous gift will help provide access to fresh, clean water for an entire school community.

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. Additionally, many schools are used as storm shelters. A lack of bathrooms and drinking water means that children and families are left without proper facilities during emergencies.


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.

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.
