This organization is really near and dear to my heart. I saw the team members grow and become wonderful professionals!
After six years of collaborative work in Ward 12, Brighter Dawns continues to demonstrate the benefits of having a holistic water, sanitation, and hygiene program that serves to strengthen the community over time. The organization's ability to build meaningful relationships with the community members is a testament to Tasmiah Khan's compassionate leadership and the willingness of the team's members to foster deeper bonds of understanding. I was fortunate enough to work with the team for a few years in the past and I am confident that with their innovative and collaborative work environment as well as their commitment to their mission--to alleviate clean water scarcity and reduce water-borne illnesses--they will continue to attract individuals to join their cause. Their organizational model for holistic development through a growing partnership with the local community members is in stark contrast to other organizations that simply choose to build infrastructure without mid to long-term plans to sustain the added capacity. It was a pleasure to witness a growing start-up nonprofit organization and I look forward to hearing great things in the near future.
This foundation provides an invaluable service to underserved and deserving of the impoverished and helpless population in Bangladesh. We need to continue to support this vital and necessary organization for their noble efforts.
Amazing and so close to my heart!! I always see pictures of all the people benefited by Brighter Dawns efforts, truly priceless!!
I think this organization truly has a genuine interest to help the people of Bangladesh. I am amazed at how hard-working the advisors are and how much care they put into everything they do. Everyone was very kind, helpful, and professional when it came to dealing with the organizations activities. They never made the time spent boring though. I genuinely enjoyed volunteering with them. It really inspired me to work with them, because I myself am of Bangladeshi descent and people don't really think of Bangladesh's crisis. I hear of so many countries (thankfully) getting aide and media hype about the assistance they need, and I am very happy to know that there is an organization willing to reach out to Bangladesh, albeit small but still densely populated and in desperate need of aide. I am happy that they wanted to target drinking water, because although Bangladesh is filled with over 300 rivers and is itself a delta, clean water is a huge issue. Good Job Brighter Dawns !
Brighter Dawns is committed to building awareness of the serious water quality and access issues affecting families in Bangladesh and taking practical action to improve the water conditions there. The organization is led by a driven, enthusiastic and inspired team whom I have had the pleasure to work with as a member of the board of directors. While serving on the board I had the opportunity to work with the founder, Tasmiha Khan, the board, volunteers and the executive team on a very successful and fun fundraising event in NYC, advise on water, sanitation and hygiene surveys and hygiene training which I have a background in, and support awareness building campaigns, among other activities. Everyone that is connected to Brighter Dawns has a passion for helping others and the work of this organization - through building wells and toilet facilities and offering hygiene training - makes a measurable difference for many of the most vulnerable families in the slums of Bangladesh. This is an incredible nonprofit and very worthy of your time and support! Thank you to the team for the inspiring and essential work that you do.
The Brighter Dawns team is exceptionally dedicated, hardworking, and skilled. As a volunteer on a college campus, I was able to learn a great deal about water and sanitation related issues in Bangladesh, participate in fundraisers, and attend nonprofit team building conferences. Brighter Dawns is not only ardently dedicated to it's cause, but also dedicated to its team members.
Exceptional people doing much needed work. Not only is their cause extremely worthy, but the directors are delights to work with. Their passion is unmatched.
Brighter Dawns (BD) has the special distinction of rooting its foundation in the conviction that, no matter the physical distance, even a small group of people can make a big difference in the lives of many. Zeroing in on slum communities in Bangladesh, BD has built and repaired wells and latrines; educated the local populace about sanitation; and empowered and employed local women to continue this work. While never hesitating to address major public health needs, BD has been ever-respectful and inclusive of the needs, wants, and voices of the inhabitants of Ward 12 in Kulna and other communities like it, and tailor their efforts to meet those needs accordingly. While working with very few resources and from across the world, BD has done a great deal of excellent and meaningful work, and I have witnessed the people behind it grow their projects and aspirations from more to more.
This organization has very dedicated leaders who do their jobs despite having their normal schedules. Supporting them means a lot--it contributes to society!
