This Daan Utsav, let’s give the most essential gift of clean water to improve millions of lives.
More than 163 million Indians lack access to safe drinking water. Water is a necessity for sustaining life but if the quality of water is affected, it can be hazardous.
At WaterAid, we work every day to make clean water accessible for everyone, everywhere. Our on-ground work spreads across the country, reaching far corners and marginalised communities.
October 2-8 is Daan Utsav or the Joy of Giving Week presents us with a great opportunity to join forces and support those who are less fortunate than us.
You can play a big role in making our mission a reality.

WaterAid is an international not-for-profit organisation, determined to make clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene normal for everyone, everywhere. Across India, millions of women are wasting precious time collecting dirty water, children are dying from preventable diarrhoeal diseases, and as a result communities as a whole suffer. Since 1986, WaterAid India has successfully implemented water, sanitation and hygiene projects to transform the lives of the poor and the most marginalised.
What do WaterAid do?
Water and sanitation are basic human rights, and we believe that universal access to Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) services is achievable with the right political will and resources. Working at both the community and government level, we focus on five primary themes of work:
- Rural WASH
- Urban WASH
- WASH in schools
- WASH in health & nutrition
- WASH in disaster risk reduction & climate change adaptation Influencing long-lasting change is integral to everything that we do. We use our experience, our work with partner organisations and our learning through research and analysis to influence policy at local, state, national and global levels.
