Provide clean drinking water in Bangladesh while reducing CO2.
Protect local forests
Improve the health of locals
Provide access to clean drinking water
Help increase school visits for children
Only due to the support of our community we were able to achieve this immpact:
Currently many Bangladeshi families disinfect pond and rain water by boiling it. This process is CO2 intensive and is harmful to people's respiratory system and local forests.
Here's where your support comes in!
You give 'WADI' devices to families in need. This device, which is recommended by WHO, disinfects water by using the solar water disinfection (SODIS) method. The natural process cleanses the water by killing germs such as viruses, bacteria and parasites by using the UV-A rays of sunlight. Now, residents of Sarankhola in Bangladesh can drink rain- and pond water without having to boil the water beforehand.
As a result, locals not only save limited income by not buying firewood, but also prevent CO2 emissions. Before water could be disinfected by SODIS, forests had to be cut down in order to provide enough fuel for water disinfection. Now trees can continue absorbing CO2. Also, fires to boil and disinfect the water would emit large amounts of CO2, which now can be prevented. In addition to this ecological impact, we also enable a benefit for locals: health, education, jobs and secure income.
For every compensated ton of CO2 with TeamClimate, 5 people are provided with clean drinking water in Bangladesh.
We partner with experts to create the best possible impact together. HELIOZ acts as our partner for our project in Sarankhola, Bangladesh. The project is recommended by the WHO and certified by the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences Vienna (BOKU).
Our partners are actively engaged with locals to ensure everything goes as planned.
Before the project started, people were ill several days or even weeks every month. Now they don't report any drinking water-related illnesses anymore.
Your climate neutrality supports all projects which are carefully selected in partnership with climate experts to ensure the highest degree of effectiveness.
