Thank you for providing clean water in Bangladesh
Dear Project of the Month Club Member,
In rural, coastal regions of Bangladesh, 3 out of 4 people struggle to access clean drinking water. Water-borne diseases are common, and women frequently travel miles to find water—sometimes unfiltered—for their families.
That’s where our partner Bangladesh Environment and Development Society (BEDS) comes in. By preserving rainwater and installing locally-developed water purification technology, BEDS has helped more than 9,000 individuals from 11 villages access safe drinking water.
When Chief Executive Md. Maksudur Rahman learned that BEDS had been selected as the Project of the Month, they shared their immense gratitude, saying:
“It's very difficult to explain our happiness—but after receiving the message that we are a member of GlobalGiving Project of the Month Club, we know that we are not alone, that there are many hands helping promote grassroots change.”
To learn more about how BEDS is supporting the communities and ecosystems of Bangladesh, check out their most recent report.
Thank you for ringing in the New Year with generosity!
GlobalGiving Interim CEO
