Daxmin Paschhim Amtoli Wells

New Well

Daxmin Paschhim Amtoli is a small village in Bangladesh with approximately 35 households.

Before support from Global Giving, Daxin Paschhim Amtoli had very little access to clean water for drinking, cooking and personal hygiene.  Women had to travel a long way to the nearest Government Primary School, which was difficult and particularly risky for pregnant women.

Most of the households didn’t use sanitary latrines or keep drinking water and food covered. As a result, most of the people suffered from diarrhea, especially the children.

With the help of GlobalGiving, the community installed a deep tubewell (DTW) and held court-yard sessions to teach the community about personal hygiene. Now, the community takes an active role in cleaning and maintaining the DTW and has installed household latrines and a soak well at their own cost.

With access to safe drinking water, sanitary latrines and information on personal hygiene, families in Daxmin Paschhim Amtoli are free from diarrheal diseases.
