A better place to 'go'

Boys pose in front of two recently constructed toilet blocks in Tetuljhara, an outskirt of Savar in Bangladesh. These toilets were built as part of a community-based water and sanitation project. During meeting sessions, neighbors decided that having hygienic toilets was their community's most urgent need. With Water.org and local partner DSK's help, they are now a reality.
