Human Welfare Foundation’s water and sanitation programs incorporate building infrastructure, sanitation improvement and overall hygiene awareness.
Human Welfare Foundation recognizes the critical importance of the issue and focuses on the most-aﬀected areas to tackle water poverty, by providing people with crucial amenities like Hand-pumps. We believe that everyone should be able to access clean water and that this access underpins all other aspects of development. These have gone a long way in improving the lives of many people across India.
Another crucial amenity that helps in providing water in the remote areas with water scarcity is the bore well with submersible pump. HWF has established submersible pumps in various places across India helping establishments like schools and communities to avail clean and healthy water.
To tackle lack of piped water supply in villages and rural areas, HWF focuses on building and establishment of open wells in villages and places, which provides clean drinking water to a large community. These open wells have come as blessings for many people across India.
Under HWF’s Drinking Water Project, six Reverse Osmosis (RO) Water Purification Plants have been set up to solve the drinking water crisis of the people in the most marginalized regions of the country. From the RO Plants, 4 villages, with an average of 500 households in each village, have been benefitted. The projects have made huge impact reducing the water crisis of the affected villages and localities in the states of Assam, Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Delhi, Haryana, Jharkhand, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan.
HWF constructs cost effective and user-friendly toilets at household level to help rural communities get full access to the ‘Right to Sanitation’ and develop open defecation free villages. It also helps in significantly reducing diseases linked with poor sanitation and hygiene practices.
