AzuKo, uses design as a tool for sustainable development in Northwest Bangladesh. AzuKo uses architecture, design and civil engineering skills to co-design, with local communities, the solutions to climate change and poverty. AzuKo tackles these issues through a series of distinct projects, all developed with local people, mainly women. AzuKo champions co-design by involving many stakeholders in the design and delivery of projects. They build educational playspaces for disadvantaged children, double-storey bamboo houses in slums, toilets for families with no access to safe sanitation and infrastructure improvements to bring clean, fresh water to whole neighbourhoods in Bangladesh. AzuKo is using the Fore grant to introduce a new donor management system, develop and manage its relationship with donors and produce an impact report to support its messaging to donors.
