Why water and sanitation
Most of us take water for granted. It’s available to us so easily, we forget that there are millions who don’t have access to it, despite the government’s best efforts.
With a population of 1.3 billion, India is the second most populous country in the world. According to a recent report, 162 million do not have access to safe water. Estimates also suggest that India will become water stressed by 2025 and will fully utilize its water resources by 2050. Water management is a dynamic and complex issue, where the problems constantly seem to be outpacing the solutions.
For us, working towards bringing in long-term systemic change at scale is the goal.
