Challenge

The 4500 residents in the urban slum of Pallabi struggle to meet their daily water needs. Some retrieve water from illegal connections to the city’s water supply, or from construction sites, mosques, or contaminated drainage ditches. People of Pallabi Slum can pay some of the capital costs of and all maintenance costs for a new water system. Our Bangladeshi partner organization will work with them to develop and implement a sustainable community water supply and sanitation system.

Solution

Construct underground water reservoir with connections to Dhaka Water and Sewerage Authority water mains; hand pumps and drainage facilities; sanitation block with pit latrines; and septic tank.

Long-Term Impact

Provide 4500 residents of a urban slum in Bangladesh with safe and adequate water supply.
