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.

SAJIDA Foundation with Penny Appeal implemented a community-centric project in Datter Char which has provided access to clean water for local clinics, WASH blocks for school students, and pipe water supply for households. Adopting a community approach can play a significant roles in ensuring Bangladesh’s target of total sanitation for all by 2030.
