Project Trishna

Project Trishna is a social venture which has been designed to integrate water purification and extraction systems in communities experiencing contamination or shortage of drinking water. The project utilizes the platforms of Corporate Social Responsibility and local entrepreneurship to ensure resource mobilization for clean water accessibility. The various technology required for water processing is acquired via partnerships with selected water-tech companies and entities.

 

Since 2015, Footsteps has set up over 80 water systems, with over 10,000 people depending on the project for drinking water on a daily basis. The project is now planning to scale up in other parts of the country to address issues such as arsenic contamination and salination. 

The Latrine Project

The Latrine Project, implemented in November 2017, is a community development project which sets up efficient and storm-resilient sanitation facilities for vulnerable communities along the coastal belt of Bangladesh. The Project provides the same Corporate Social Responsibility platform for corporations to be a part of the project by personally investing in setting up a latrine facility. 

 

The project has been implemented in Ledhapara, Teknaf and is currently benefitting 200 families. The project intends to set up over 500 efficient sanitation facilities along the coastal belt and also create waste treatment facilities in the region for waste generated from the latrines. Swiss-based NGO Global Changemakers and Bangladesh Society for Enforcement of Human Rights are also the project's implementation partners.

Project Britto

Project Britto is an educational platform which conducts workshops and seminars on issues and topics not usually taught in school, such as graphic designing and robotics, and not part of the conventional conversations, such as consent and sexual education. The platform aims to raise awareness of taboo issues which is key in developing communities.  

 

The first Britto seminar was held in Capstone School Dhaka on March 2017 the topic 'The Age of Tech' for the students of Capstone. The second Britto seminar was held in National Press Club on July 2017 on the topic 'Gender Equality, Sexual Harassment and Consent' in front of media personnel to raise mass awareness on an alarming tabooed social problem in Bangladesh.
