A RIGHT TO A TOILET: A RIGHT TO BE SAFE, CLEAN AND HEALTHY
More than one third of the urban population in Bangladesh doesn’t have access to improved sanitation. By empowering communities to identify the need to increase their access to hygienic latrines and contracting by themselves the works, UPPR is trying to help the Government to tackle this problem in a sustainable way.

Water should be sufficient, safe, physically accessible and affordable – it is the human right to water. Still, water is not equally distributed. Around 3,600 families in Bhashantek lack access to safe water but today they are being connected to the city water network.
Government of Bangladesh recognizes role models for women’s empowerment
UPPR supports women who suffer from extreme poverty, integrating them into community structures and providing them with apprenticeships and grants for microenterprise development. As a result, many women have built up capacities and earn regular income to help their families. Two of them have been awarded by the Government of Bangladesh as “Self-Reliant Women”.
