  1. Max Foundation (Stichting Max)

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

  3. Child mortality in Bangladesh is 9%, almost 20 times more than in the Netherlands Health comparison Bangladesh and Netherlands More than half driven by diarrea and water related infection

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

  5. The Max foundation chose Bangladesh because there it can achieve most with the least Why sanitation in Bangladesh? • 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

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

  7. People wash themselves in extremely dirty rivers …

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

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

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

  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” “no more scabies since we wash ourselves in clean water” In some villages not a single child had died since the sanitation was provided

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

  13. So far more than 500 villages received sanitation

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

  16. Publicity has been very valuable fo the foundation Publicity Max Foundation

  17. Especially the newspapers and television Publicity Max Foundation
