WATER AND SANITATION PROGRAM of Rainbow Nari O Shishu Kallyan Foundation 1996
As our main mission is to create a society free from all devastation, diseases etc we give emphasis on water and sanitation, as it is the main basis of getting ride off all diseases. Rainbow Nari O Shishu Kallyan Foundation has been incorporating WatSan activities exclusively with the assistance form integrated software and hardware support services from the Qatar Charity under its collaboration activities. We have been setup deep tubule in costrel region Agalzara, Barishal. In this activity we start from 2008 with financial support by Qatar Charity. Under this program we aware the people about arsenic and it’s effect, importance of drinking safe water and the bad effect of drinking impure water. Wastewater management, Ecological sanitation (ECOSAN) is also part of this program.
We have achieved a sound experience in rehabilitation activities, particularly in WatSan activities. After any devastating cyclone in coastal belts, Rainbow Nari O Shishu Kallyan Foundation runs its rehabilitation activities, which included relief distribution, ensuring safe water & environmental sanitation, repairing and resetting the damaged tube wells, dewatering ponds as well as producing water-seal ring-slab latrines from its own fund.
Furthermore, Rainbow Nari O Shishu Kallyan Foundation performed arsenic test on a good number of hand tube-wells with its own efforts and funds. The tube-wells with arsenic contamination were marked red while the arsenic free tube-wells were marked green. We also spread awareness among the people using communication materials on usage of safe water, personal hygiene practice, disposal of solid waste and dangers of arsenic and arsenic mitigation options.
