Every year monsoons sweep across Bangladesh destroying homes, infrastructure and livelihoods, particularly on small islands and river lands. When floods hit, entire communities are left with only dirty flood water to drink as emergency rescue teams struggle to access the isolated areas. Dreamwater portable water filters that can instantly purify flood water and turn it into clean drinking water will be given to women living in Bangladesh’s river lands. During monsoon season the women will become emergency respondents, providing a clean water source to the community in crisis. During dry season the women will be able to earn a living by selling filtered water at a low cost. Women will receive training on how to use the Dreamwater portable filters, how to respond in a crisis, as well as basic business skills so they can provide clean water to the community all year round. This project will also challenge social taboos in traditional areas where it’s unusual for women to work, let alone become emergency responders.
