About the Cause

Poor health and nutrition negatively affect children’s school attendance and ability to learn. We implement school feeding programs that look for alternative ways to ensure sustainable supply of nutritious foods to school children and young people in urban and marginalized areas. 

I addition, contaminated water and poor sanitation are big factors that result in the death of children worldwide. In our programs, we always include what is called WASH which means Water, Sanitation & Hygiene. This is done through the design and construction of child-friendly and gender sensitive facilities for sanitation, such as latrines and hand-washing stations. We also provide clean water supply by building water wells and raise awareness about the importance of sanitation and hygiene.
 

My Story

The recent urbanization of Bangladesh has resulted in extremely low standards of living with the majority of the population living in slums and dealing with very unhygienic conditions. The lack of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) facilities is particularly apparent in public facilities such as schools, where the state of WASH facilities remains very poor. A recent study on WASH facilities in all primary schools in Bangladesh showed only one out of every five latrines being functional; 60% of latrines being unclean; only 64% of schools having handwashing facilities and 40% not having soap. In addition, according to a survey conducted by the Government of Bangladesh, 35% of the primary schools do not have gender-specific latrines.
