Alongside bringing clean water and decent hygiene to hundreds of people, our aim is to help highlight and overcome some of the continuing struggles for gender equality in developing countries - such as Bangladesh - in which women are often subjected to both gender and social discrimination resulting in a lack of opportunities to support both themselves and their families.
Only by challenging inequalities wherever we find them, can we achieve a world where no woman or girl has their access denied, not just to clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene – but to health, education and financial security.
One of the many projects will train 80 women in the operation and maintenance of a ‘Reverse Osmosis’ water treatment plant, which are simple to manage, low cost
to run and use effective techniques in the cleaning and purifying of water.
We believe that the fulfilment of these women’s abilities through skill development, employment and empowerment, will have a massive impact on the elimination of poverty and ill health within these communities.
Together, with WaterAid, we strive to unlock women’s potential with clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene.
