WaterAid is an international NGO focused exclusively on ensuring equitable access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene education (WASH) for the world’s poorest communities. Formed in 1981 we have been working in water, sanitation and hygiene for over 30 years. To date we have reached 17.5 million people with safe water and 12.9 million people with improved sanitation. WaterAid works in 27 countries globally, primarily in sub-Saharan Africa, Asia and Central America. Each country operates a national WaterAid Country Programme. These are supported by our offices in the UK, USA, Sweden and Australia. WaterAid has been working in India since 1986. WaterAid India is headquartered in New Delhi, with regional offices in Bhopal, Bhubaneswar, Bangalore and Lucknow. Since formation WaterAid India has reached 4,620,000 people with safe water and 1,240,000 people with sanitation. As with all WaterAid programmes our approach in India combines service delivery work – physically providing access to WASH – with advocacy work – mobilising support for national policies that advance the rights of poor people living without water and sanitation services. WaterAid India support work at a local, state and national level. The national programme provides support to local service delivery work, delivered through our local NGO partners on the ground. Alongside this they also co-ordinate state and national advocacy campaigns - mobilising people to actively demand rights to improved water and sanitation services from government agencies. Broadly speaking our work in India can be divided into four thematic focus areas 1) Rural WASH - Scaling up rural water and sanitation project to district levels 2) Urban WASH - Poverty mapping and community management in poor settlements of large cities. We help communities to influence city sanitation plans to adopt pro-poor processes and designs ensuring their inclusion in city planning and access to WASH 3) Equity and Inclusion - increasing access to safe water and sanitation for four targeted marginalized groups: people living with HIV/AIDS, people with disabilities, women and adolescent girls (menstrual hygiene), and Scheduled Castes (also broadly referred as Dalits). 4) Water Security – introducing appropriate, resilient water and sanitation technologies interventions in areas affected by drought/flooding, depleted ground water and variable water quality due to bacteria, arsenic & fluoride. WaterAid India currently manage 45 projects across 9 states: Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Orissa, Tamil Nadu and Uttar Pradesh. WaterAid India partners include local NGOs, institutions, national governments, service providers and private sector actors.
