No child should die from easily preventable diseases. But still, 2,3 million children under 5 die every year of water and hygiene related diseases like diarrhea. This equals nearly 6,500 children every day. Clean Water, Sanitation and Hygiene education (WASH) addresses child mortality in the most effective and sustainable manner.

We finance small scale WASH programmes, implemented by local partner organisations, in the poorest and most remote regions of rural Bangladesh. In these areas we provide clean drinking water by building water wells, we install latrines and give education about hygiene. Our standard approach now always incorporates training and equipping Traditional Birth Assistants (TBA's), and
building school toilet blocks. Read more about our Max-WASH approach.
