Shishir is a clean drinking water solution working to serve the underserved population of Bangladesh at an affordable price so that they can continuously avail it and in an environment friendly way so that there are no negative impacts on nature or the beneficiaries.
CLEAN DRINKING WATER FOR ALL
Shishir Water involves the use of the UV LED Water Cleaning Technology orginally developed by Watersprint AB, a Swedish company, to avail clean potable water to the poor population of certain contamination affected areas of Bangladesh. The very first Shishir Water plant in Mymensing utilizes the surface water from river Bramhaputra.
We are currently ensuring sustainable supply of safe water for consumption for more than 2000 people and we have already created 6 jobs. We believe access to drinking water is a basic human rights and we want to ensure that our communities receive what they deserve. Shishir addresses Global Goals no 06 and addresses gender equality because women are prone to even greater risks related to hygiene dependent on water.
Today 1 in 5 people are in need of access to safe drinking water in Bangladesh. It’s a big crisis! But if we all work together we can turn this crisis into an opportunity. Access to safe drinking water can improve health and well being of our communities, bring kids to school and create work opportunities.
We aspire to change that situation by empowering young people from the needy communities, building sustainable water projects and ensuring access to clean drinking water.
If your community needs a Shishir micro production centre or if you are passionate about ensuring clean drinking water in a Bangladeshi disadvantaged community or if you are looking for partners to launch a water social business, we are here to play our part. Leave us a message!
