Lasting water and sanitation solutions can only be achieved when local actors – the private sector, civil society, and local government – are supported. As such, Water For People partners with and builds the skills of the District, Block Governments, Gram Panchayat and Panchayati Raj Institutions (community governments in rural areas), local Self Help Groups, community-based organizations, and local non-governmental organizations. Water For People installs and rehabilitates community water systems and handpumps. Due to poor maintenance, many water pumps are broken down. We have addressed this issue by training water user committees and developing a network of mobile mechanics known as Jalabandhus (Friends of Water). Local water and sanitation committees oversee the operation and maintenance of their local systems to promote sustainability and community involvement. The government of India’s Swachh Bharat Mission is for the country to be open defecation free, and we are promoting that mission through a variety of sanitation initiatives including a Water For People Sanitation Hub researches and invents new sanitation products, ideas, and tools. Local sanitation entrepreneurs are supported with tools to develop their businesses that sell toilets and supplies, and we also partner with local microfinance institutions to provide loans for investment in bathrooms. Water For People’s work in schools improves sanitation and water services and promotes good hygiene and menstrual hygiene practices among students. Through school Water and Sanitation Committees, students are encouraged to take ownership of water and sanitation facilities. These committees help maintain the facilities and promote good hygiene to their fellow students.
