Mirpur community updates

  • 270 households tap into city water supply 

    In 2016, four neighbourhoods comprising 270 households successfully campaigned for legal water connection to the Dhaka city water supply. “I am not able to express how much happy I am today,” said community member Jamila, aged 65. “I spent most of the time of my life to collect water from different areas of Mirpur, which were illegal source. Now I am getting safe and legal water at my home.”

  • Focus on hygiene delivers strong results

    A 2016 survey showed 66 percent of households now practise hygienic waste disposal using household waste bins and community rubbish collection points. This increased from 30 percent in 2015 following hygiene and sanitation awareness raising activities. “Now I keep my house neat and clean and all of my community people also clean their surroundings, so my child does not suffer from diarrhoea now,” said community member Rani, aged 34.
