Review for Brighter Dawns, Bridgeview, IL, USA
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.
