HWF's water and sanitation programmes incorporate building infrastructure, improving sanitation and developing hygiene awareness.
According to the report issued by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and UNICEF, India is home to 97 million people without an access to improved water supplies. Over all, there are still 780 million people without access to an improved drinking water source.
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 sources of clean water, constructing toilets, restoring sanitation facilities and educating communities about the best hygiene practices. Human Welfare Foundation believes that everyone should be able to access clean water and that this access underpins all other aspects of development.
