Sanitation Program9 months ago
Sanitation Program is aiming to improve clean water and basic sanitation facilities program of CCDA. Like many parts of Bangladesh, the underground water of CCDA working area is highly contaminated with arsenic. On realizing the potential danger of prevalence of arsenic, CCDA in cooperation with NGO Forum started to set-up alternative technology to ensure arsenic-free drinking water on cost-sharing basis. These technologies include rain water harvesting and arsenic-iron removal plant. Supplying rainwater through pipeline among the community people at door step level on pilot basis is an important feature for CCDA activities. The program, one of the very few in Bangladesh, is running successfully, thanks to the active participation and cooperation of the community. On the other hand, CCDA has been implementing sanitation project through providing both hardware and software services among the community to complement the SDG of Bangladesh Government. Hardware service includes manufacturing as well as distributing slab latrine while software is developing awareness and motivating people for use of improved latrines.
CCDA has been implementing more projects as awareness community people to provided safe water drinking and uses sanitary latrine (toilet).
