The Thames4Bangladesh campaign may have come to an end, but for the communities we’ve reached, a whole new way of life is just beginning.
A clean start in Kalaroa
There were big celebrations in Kalaroa when the town's new water plant opened. It provides safe water to more than 3,000 residents, who previously had to drink contaminated water or pay inflated rates from private vendors.
Abid's new toilet
Through Thames4Bangladesh, 6,000 toilets were installed in homes, schools and public areas. For Abid and his family in Shakiphur, that means a safe, private place to go to the toilet for the very first time.
Piped water in Paikgacha
Paikgacha's piped water supply was installed in partnership with the local municipality. It provides clean water to some of the town's poorest households, including Sweety's, with over 500 homes connected in the first year.
