Chemists Without Borders is working on solving humanitarian problems in a number of countries using the expertise of chemists in our community but also with a number of non-chemists. In Bangladesh, for example, we are working with high schools to educate students on the health hazards of arsenic in drinking water. In two of those schools, we have been able to raise funds to replace their wells contaminated with arsenic. This project has brought safe water to about 4000 students. We have also developed a Health Education Course for Bangladesh high school students. In Bangladesh, we are also setting up a facility to manufacture inexpensive test strips to measure arsenic concentration in water and another facility to measure arsenic concentration in rice.
We are also developing chemistry kits using small quantities of chemicals for high school students in Sierra Leone. This will allow schools without a chemistry lab to still do chemistry experiments.
