Profile: Our children need clean water

Ms Sabina Yasmein
Program Manager
LWF/DWS Rangpur Dinajpur Rural Service (RDRS), Bangladesh

'Without clean drinking water, we could not ensure the good health of our children,' says Ms Yasmin. 'The whole human being depends on water. Without water all living creatures will die.' This consultation is significantly on time because it addresses water-related issues and concerns.

Being the program manager of RDRS, she is concerned with the education of the children in her working area. She shared that most of the parents in Rangpur do not encourage their children to go to school. Instead, they take their children with them to the farm or send them out to work for a living. To motivate the parents, RDRS has to assure good health and security of their children in school. Hence, they must guarantee that the water these children are drinking is clean and safe. Otherwise, without good health, the children will not comprehend well what they are learning in school.
