As these ladies pose in front of a new toilet block, their vessels full of safe water from the newly installed pump in Aminbazar, Dhaka, Bangladesh, we are reminded that access to water has the power to change someone's life. Now, rather than spending hours per day walking and waiting to collect it, these women have time to practice a trade, earn a living, or even attend school for the first time. Furthermore, the new toilets offer protection from physical harm and disease. Learn more about how the water and sanitation crises effect women.
