Please join us for an afternoon fundraiser for Brighter Dawns on Saturday, November 16th! This event will highlight the water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) issues affecting people living in the slums in Bangladesh and the new opportunities for health improvement and WASH education that Brighter Dawns is creating through our work in the Ward 12 slum of Bangladesh.
The fundraiser event will include a discussion on WASH and public health issues in Bangladesh and the potential for improved health, well-being and opportunity through hygiene education and behaviour change practices. We will hear from the founder of Brighter Dawns, Tasmiha Khan, as well as other Brighter Dawns staff about their experience working in Bangladesh and will also feature a WASH keynote speaker. In addition, we will show a short film screening about the current WASH situation in Ward 12 and Brighter Dawns work there. Snacks and refreshments will be provided and there will be a silent auction with rare and inspiring images captured during our recent trip to Bangladesh as well as other exciting items.
We invite you to join us and learn about the current WASH-related problems facing families in Ward 12, what solutions are available, and how you can get involved and make a difference. We thank you for your support and look forward to seeing you at the fundraiser event on November 16th!
When & Where
Brighter Dawns (www.brighterdawns.org), a charitable registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization (EIN# 27-4544006), works to improve health conditions for families in the slums of Bangladesh. Brighter Dawns focuses its projects on Ward 12, one of the poorest slums in the region of Khalishpur, Khulna. Our nonprofit builds and fixes wells, latrines, and bathrooms; has distributed 2000 sanitation kits; hires women to be community health workers; and hosts health education seminars in the community on sanitary practices and methods of disease prevention. We have positively impacted over 6,000 people to date. However, as 32 million people still lack clean water and are affected by water-related illness, our work is nowhere near finished.
