Fresh Water for the First Time!

Students in Baliarpur primary school in Savar are now much more able to learn, and to protect their health, thanks to the support of Global Giving contributors. With funds raised, Save the Children has repaired two latrines, built two new latrines, installed two urinals for boys, built five hand washing points (four for children and one for teachers). And for the first time, children at the school now have clean, safe drinking water! 

Fifth grader Hajera explains, “Before, I had to leave school and walk to my house to use the bathroom. This meant I would miss one class. I am very happy to get new latrines, hand washing facilities and drinking water right at my school!”

Salman, another fifth grader, says “My friends and I used to have to go to the bathroom outside. There was a very bad smell at the school because of the dirty latrines. Sometimes, we would carry bottled water from home, now we have as much as we need at school.”

Save the Children is also providing health education, vitamins, vision screening, de-worming medicines and other basic health services to children at the school. In the next month, the latrines will be painted and a signboard will be installed.
