Give People Access to Clean Water

by Nowabenki Gonomukhi Foundation Vetted since 2016

Summary

Our project will build and strengthen the capacity of the Clean Water for Coastal People in Bangladesh program by setting up 10 water delivery points at 10 villages that need urgent help. With your help, we will buy a delivery van, saving village women hours of trekking and two reverse osmosis systems so that it can provide clean water to 2500 households where the water is unsafe and contaminated by Arsenic and high salinity.

Challenge

Global warming and climatic change causes sea level rise, as a result some low lying areas of the world are sinking, including our project area, near the Sundarbans forest. Salinity in the surface water (ponds and rivers) has been increasing and becoming unsafe to use for drinking and other household purposes and ground water in the area is contaminated by Arsenic. As a result, access to clean water has become a grave concern for those living in the coastal villages in Bangladesh.

Solution

NGF has found that Reverse Osmosis System (ROS) is the easiest way to provide clean drinking water, free of cost, to the local villagers. So far we have set up three production centers producing 30,000 liters of clean, bacteria free water a day, reaching nearly 1500 households. We want to double our impact and need your help to reach more people in need.

Long-Term Impact

This project will help 2500 households to get access to clean water and improve their health and wellbeing. It will directly reduce the healthcare cost of the villagers who would otherwise become ill from contaminated water, freeing them to attend school and work on a regular basis, and reduce climatic migration forced by lack of access to basic water and other amenities. By providing clean water to these villages we are helping them stand a fighting chance against avoidable illness and poverty.
