Khan ’12 is a “Young Woman to Look Out For”

In honor of International Women’s Day, DoSomething.org named Tasmiha Khan ’12 one of the “11 Young Women to Look Out For.”

Through the organization Brighter Dawns, Khan raises awareness about the water-related illnesses in Bangladesh and builds wells, latrines and shower rooms in an effort to combat sanitary ignorance and the inability to access safe sanitation.

With a goal of 5 million active members by 2015, DoSomething.org is one of the largest organizations in the U.S. for teens and social change.
