How is life in an urban slum? Meet Esther, Nadira and Fuseini. 
Esther, Nadira and Fuseni are part of a growing population living in poverty in urban slums. Despite precarious living conditions, they decided to leave their villages hoping to find a better future in the city. With rapid urbanisation, especially in developing countries, the slum challenge remains critical. Most people living in slums face health issues due to poor sanitation, unsafe drinking water and the lack of money to buy good quality food. Unemployment represents a significant problem, especially for youth in countries with ballooning population. In our latest campaign, we explore the daily challenges faced by people living in poverty in the fast-growing cities of the developing world.  
Join us in our exploration and read more about our activities.

Urban sanitation in Bangladesh: how it all started

In Bangladesh, access to sanitation has improved. Open defecation has dropped from 18% in 2000 to 1% in 2015 and people living in cities have access to latrines. However, human waste management is still a challenge. Read more.

Using a gender lens for urban developmental solutions

In both rural and urban contexts, women form the core of most households. Empowering them can lead to better outcomes for every member of the family. Read more.
