Kamruzzaman (RUET) and the members of EWB-RUET installed a sanitary latrine for the slum people. Toilets also provide a level of privacy and dignity and adequate sanitation and encourage people o, particularly for adolescent girls in slum dwellers. In this way they try to help these slum people to a healthy life.
They also encouraged the slum people to use the latrine in a proper hygienic way.
