Introduction: The main objective of this project is to demonstrate appropriate service delivery models for communal water supply services, and market-based approaches for household filters, to ensure sustainable safe water access by remote and low-income residents in CHT.  

The project will work with 7 established Women’s Business Centres (WBCs) (35 woman entrepreneurs) across Barkal Upazila reaching approximately 10,000 people across approximately 15 villages.
