1 1 Max Foundation (Stichting Max)

2 2 Max Foundation prevents child mortality in Bangladesh in a transparent and efficient fashion Prevents child mortality through the combination of 1.Wells 2.Latrines 3.Information In a transparent fashion 1.Invests scarce resources where the result is largest 2.No overhead charges: all operational costs are reimbursed by board 3.Feedback on donation through fotographs Summary

3 3 Child mortality in Bangladesh is 9%, almost 20 times more than in the Netherlands Health comparison Bangladesh and Netherlands NetherlandsBangladesh Child mortality (< 5years) 0,54%9,5% Maternal mortality per births Inhabitants/medic Income/ capita (€) More than half driven by diarrea and water related infection

4 4 The foundation is named after Max and stands also for other children who passed away But also: Romy Meike Kasper Victor Sophia

5 5 The Max foundation chose Bangladesh because there it can achieve most with the least High impact because of relatively high preventable child mortality Low cost because of soft ground and extreme poverty Many users per well because of high population density Robustness of result because of social stability Why sanitation in Bangladesh?

6 6 Max Foundation operates in the relatively poor south with three partner organisations Activities in Bangladesh SLOPB Aungkur Aloshikha

7 7 People wash themselves in extremely dirty rivers …

8 8 …and live near shallow, polluted ponds from which they often drink

9 9 The digging of the wells is completely done by hand

10 10 The result is a clean water well without arsenic contamination Village provides: -200 signatures -Maintenance committee -Village responsible -Local contribution (€100) €450 Total cost €100 Local contribution €350 Max Foundation

11 11 The improvement in water quality is enormous 15 randomly visited villages claimed: “Since we have the wells and latrines are children have virtually no more diarrea” In some villages not a single child had died since the sanitation was provided “no more scabies since we wash ourselves in clean water”

12 12 The possibility to ‘sponsor’ a well proved very popular

13 13 So far more than 500 villages received sanitation

14 14 Also air-sealed latrines are less glamorous but just as important Because of the air-seal, flies can not access the faeces and transfer diseases The foot rests minimize the amount of faeces carried back into the households Handwash water: the first sept to hygiene

15 15 Besides the hardware (wells and latrines), the software is crucial
