WaterAid is an international non-profit, determined to make clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene accessible and normal for everyone by 2030. We are working to transform the lives of the world’s poorest and most marginalised people – making sure that no one is left behind.

WaterAid Bangladesh

WaterAid Bangladesh was established in 1986 and has since been working with Bangladeshi communities to help them demand their rights for water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH), and support the government and other duty bearers to respond to citizen’s needs. We co-design and implement WASHcentered solutions with community-led models of development being central to our mission. As of 2021, WaterAid Bangladesh is working with 13 partners to scale WASH at the grassroots. To make lasting change happen on a grand scale, we collaborate with sector actors, advocate with policy makers and rally support from people so that many voices can be heard and impact can be sustained Our area of focus is crosscutting – ranging from hard-to-reach, salinity and disaster-prone areas in Southern Bangladesh to urban slums, industrial districts and small towns. This also translates to a very diverse range of beneficiaries such as impoverished villagers and workers to ready-made garment industries. To date, we have covered 18 districts, 21 sub- districts, 8 city corporations, and 4 municipalities.
