Southern Bangladesh

Tess De Paula

With your help, we will supply 500 people with clean water with a new school piped system in Southern Bangladesh, together with charity: water and their field partner BRAC.


Bangladesh faces both water access and water quality challenges. The rural population primarily relies on groundwater, much of which has a high risk of contamination from arsenic, iron, and salinity if not accessed and treated effectively.

The summer monsoon season also brings flooding to the areas we support through BRAC, while the dry season brings widespread water scarcity and drought.


BRAC was founded in Bangladesh in 1972 to provide relief following Bangladesh’s war for independence. It has since evolved into the largest non-governmental organization in the world. They focus on alleviating poverty and empowering the poor, including addressing the water crisis in Bangladesh.

Within BRAC’s program, schools are equipped with piped water systems that bring water to drinking water stations that double as handwashing stations. Hygiene messages are painted on the walls and all staff, children, parents and community members associated with the school receive comprehensive hygiene and sanitation education.


Clean water is pumped through a supply line to a storage tank. From the storage tank, water flows through a network of pipes to gender-separated tap stands that are used as both drinking water stations and handwashing stations. Because the water is piped directly to the school, piped systems can significantly reduce the time spent collecting water.

According to the National Strength and Conditioning Association, a warm-up is defined as “preparatory activities and functionally based movements that are specifically designed to prepare the body for exercise or sport”. Designing an adequate warmup is usually dependent on the athlete’s needs, goals, and abilities.¹ The goal is to mentally and physically prepare the athlete for a training session or competition; while reducing the risk of injury. Benefits of a well designed warm-up are as follows:² Psychological readiness and preparation Increased blood flow to active muscles Increased strength and power output Improved joint range of motion Increased core temperature Enhanced oxygen delivery Faster muscle contraction and relaxation There are many warm-up procedures that a coach or athlete may implement into their training routine. Learning about the advantages of different procedures is crucial to building an effective warm-up specific to yourself or another individual. This article will discuss traditional procedures like static and dynamic stretching; as well as some newer modalities aiding in the speed and effectiveness of a warmup.
