WASH Project

A stringent method was also followed to select the villages to sink the DTWs to utilize the fund effectively. Only villages without access to safe drinking water were selected and the location was determined such as to serve maximum number of poor HHs of the village. We hope this project will help the extreme poor of Haor Region to get safe drinking water as well as to be aware of the hygienic practice for which they can ultimately save themselves from illness and health hazards.
