Saamuhika Shakti

Project funded by H&M Foundation


About Jal Seva Charitable Foundation/ WaterAid India

Since the last 4 decades, WaterAid India (WAI) has carved a niche for itself among key organisations working on WASH in India through constant sector engagement. It has years of understanding on WASH and allied sectors of health, nutrition, education, community development and local governance. The organisation has adopted an integrated approach to WASH development and refined its strategies to ensure that all demands for WASH is met through intensive resource deployment.

About the project

Saamuhika Shakti is a collective impact initiative, the first of its kind in India, where seven implementing organisations have joined forces to enable waste pickers to have greater agency to lead secure and dignified lives, with a specific focus on gender and equity. This project is initiated and supported by the H&M Foundation, and The/Nudge Institute serves as the backbone.

WaterAid India focuses on ‘providing access to safe drinking water and improved sanitation for waste picker communities by building awareness, creating evidence of exclusion and liaising with the government.

WaterAid India recognises that providing just physical infrastructure – toilets, water tanks and taps – is not enough. It needs to be combined with listening to what the community wants – for instance, preference for Indian-style toilets over western-style ones – and working with them to build, operate and maintain this infrastructure. Our intervention also includes raising awareness on hygiene practices such as washing hands, and on working against period taboos in the communities.
