Access to safe water, decent toilets, and good hygiene have a direct impact on a person’s quality of life. Lack of the above leads to a disease-riddled life that eats up time and energy that should have been invested in education and livelihoods. It’s only when health and well-being are not a persisting concern that communities can focus on development. That is why we work hard to achieve SDG 6 – “clean water and sanitation for all.”
Water For People India has positively impacted more than 1.2 million lives through initiatives in community drinking water and sanitation, WASH in public institutions, and market-led approaches to sanitation. During 2008-2018, our programs have positively impacted over 150 Gram Panchayats and peri-urban areas, building on collaborations with communities, local governments and private players.
