Clean and Safe Drinking Water Collaboration in India

Brush 3

Access to Safe and Sustainable Drinking Water  Sources

The United Nations has declared that ‘Access to safe drinking water for all’ is a basic human right that should be realised by 2030. Nearly 160 million people in India still do not have access to safe water for drinking or domestic consumption. To tackle this, the Indian Government’s ‘Jal Jeevan’ Mission aims to provide safe potable tap water to every rural household in India by 2024.

Living Water India is working towards achieving the UN SDG target through its various interventions. We serve marginalized communities that do not have access to safe water by:

Providing sustainable solutions for clean water

Access to Better Sanitation and Health Services

The Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6.2 stipulates that by 2030, countries should ‘Achieve access to adequate and equitable Sanitation and Hygiene for all and end open defecation, paying special attention to the needs of women and girls and those in vulnerable situations.’

India is home to the largest number of open defecators in the world. Our startling statistics in Sanitation and Hygiene calls for an urgent intervention by various stakeholders.

210 million lack access to basic sanitation facilities

1 in 4 latrines in schools is broken or dysfunctional causing children, especially girls in most cases to drop out


1 in 5 child deaths in India occur due to diarrhoea

Having a household latrine, like having access to water, is critical in creating a healthy living environment in rural areas. The `Swachh Bharat Abhiyan’ has made a big progress in this area. However, unhygienic conditions and practices at homes are posing many health issues. Living Water India focuses on long-term behavioural change towards Sanitation and safe Hygiene practices.

Our interventions help to:


Identify the Sanitation and Hygiene requirements of households and

Sensitise and develop healthy Sanitation and Hygiene practices through various programs like:

  • Training communities and driving behavioural change through the Community-led Total Sanitation (CLTS) approach.

  • The “School-led Total Sanitation” (SLTS) approach focuses on handwashing, maintenance of water sources, and disease prevention.

Impact of Our Sanitation Programs

340 Community latrines built impacting 5,000 lives


2,600 community sanitation and training camps for over 1,20,000 individuals

145 hygiene camps impacting 11,500 rural school students


10 medical camps benefitting over 2,000 students and their families

Access to Basic Education for Children

Education is the most effective weapon against poverty, social exclusion and other inequalities. The right to basic education for all, as well as the availability of appropriate learning opportunities throughout their lives, is critical for the development of strong and resilient communities.

Living Water India has been collaborating closely with partners, empowering education to ensure that all children have access to high-quality childhood development. We are associated with a flagship program called ‘Green Square,’ which focuses on pre-primary education. We engage in the program by:

Focusing on enhancing educational techniques in Anganwadi centres

Mentoring, monitoring and providing on-site support to them

The Green Square program focuses on shaping and providing positive inputs to children at a critical juncture in their lives when they are laying the groundwork for a life of growth and development. Children at this age retain the skills and knowledge they acquire. As a result, the Green Square program works to improve their reading and writing skills while also strengthening their life skills. Through Aftercare Study Centres we have prioritized children's education and
future specially focusing on girls’ education.

The economic growth of every nation is intricately linked to a sustained and inclusive way of creating jobs and avenues of earning money for all. Through our effective intervention, we have been able to:

Help more than 400 smallholder farmers increase their productivity by
introducing and training them on Sustainable Agricultural practices like
Crop Rotation, Intercropping etc.
