WASH – WATER SANITATION & HYGIENE

Safe water, sanitation, and hygiene are at the heart
of sustainable development and critical to the survival
of people; to that end, we have been working to
provide the urban poor communities their basic
right to health, happiness and dignity.

WASH (Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene) is a program that works in partnership with donors and the Government of Bangladesh to provide integrated water, sanitation, and hygiene services. Through several innovative projects in collaboration with partners, SAJIDA Foundation has been working for the urban poor communities where WASH related diseases abound.
