Westwood woman helping in Bangladesh

WOMAN ON A MISSION: Many graduating college students spend the summer relaxing after four years of academic work, or looking for jobs. Kimberly Muellers  of Westwood spent part of hers on a mission to provide clean water to a
Bangladesh village.

Muellers, 22, who graduated this year from Wesleyan University, is one of the founders of Brighter Dawns, created by college students in 2010 with the goal of eliminating health disparities in the slums of Bangladesh, starting with a volunteer project to extend access to clean water and sanitation. Last year, the group raised more than $20,000 to build wells and latrines in Khalishpur and distributed cleaning supplies to families to help improve hygiene.
