Just 84% of secondary schools in Bangladesh have access to a drinking water source. 60% of these water sources are non-functional. The state of hygiene and sanitation facilities in secondary schools is also very poor.
Creating healthier learning environments
Creating healthier learning environments with improved WASH was a project that constructed WASH facilities for 30 schools, repaired existing WASH facilities in 26 schools and established a student brigade of 250 children who will act as agents of change and teach their communities about the importance of good hygiene awareness. So far this project has benefitted over 75,000 students from 250 schools and 750 school teachers.
