Brighter Dawns is a non-profit organization committed to improving health conditions in slums in Bangladesh. Although we have been operating for just over a year, with the help of generous supporters across the country, Brighter Dawns was able to complete its first project in the summer of 2011, constructing 15 wells, 20 latrines, and 3 bathrooms and distributing sanitary kits to provide clean water and sanitary conditions to over 5,000 slum residents of Ward 12, Khalishpur, Bangladesh. However, there are still thousands of people in Ward 12 who are placed at risk of deadly water-borne diseases every day simply because they lack access to potable water and sanitary facilities. Through the help of our donors and partners, we hope to expand our project to provide all of Ward 12 with equal access to these necessities, reducing disease and generating hope for a healthier tomorrow.
