Brighter Dawns Receives Davis Project for Peace Grant

Wesleyan’s student organization Brighter Dawns received a Davis United World College Project for Peace grant worth $10,000. The funds will support Brighter Dawns’ “Water Sanitation Project” in Khalishpur, Bangladesh for eight weeks this summer.

Tasmiha Khan ’12 and possibly Rajeeta Iyer ’12 will oversee the project, which will include building tube wells, latrines and providing health seminars and jobs for women in one of the poorest slums in Khalishpur.
