MORE ABOUT US
The Footsteps Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation founded in Bangladesh’s capital Dhaka, aims to solve some of the most complicated problems facing Bangladesh and other developing communities across the world. Historically, the foundation has achieved great success in providing water filters for free public use in Dhaka, with 80 water systems upon which over 10,000 people rely for daily use spanning the city. From here, Footsteps has developed campaigns focusing on the installation of latrines and sanitation stations, education reform, women’s empowerment, and self-defense, waste disposal, and many other issues plaguing the developing world. Because of these projects, Footsteps leaders have historically been invited to participate in the Global Youth Summit as well as to talk at United Nations conferences and events.
