This year marks the 15th anniversary of Water For People India.

For more than a decade we have been working with the most vulnerable and marginalized communities at the grassroot level to ensure they have access to clean drinking water and sanitation services.

We have been working with local governments at the Panchayat and ward levels, Integrated Child Development Service (ICDS/Anganwadi) centres, schools, and health centers.

Everyone Forever Approach

  • Our work has been driven by the ‘Everyone Forever’ approach.
  • Everyone Forever, the organization’s model focuses on comprehensive service provision while ensuring sustainability through community contribution, health, and hygiene promotion, setting up operations and maintenance systems, and aligning to government schemes and provisions.
  • Simply put, the Everyone Forever (EF) model aims to reach every family (including the hardest to reach), school, and health centre in a district with water and sanitation services (Everyone).
  • It ensures that the services last and that districts and communities maintain them for generations (Forever).
  • It is a system-strengthening approach to WASH implemented at the district level and can be taken to scale in other districts of the state & nationally.
  • Aligned to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal 6 (SDG 6), it represents Water For People India’s commitment to end the water and sanitation crisis.
  • The model brings together local institutions, community members, and local entrepreneurs who are linked to a common goal – access to safe water and sanitation for all.
