Just $45 can bring clean water to one person in Orissa, India.
Clean water and sanitation help break the cycle of poverty and promote social equality.
Our local partner, Gram Vikas, fights for the most marginalized people in Orissa, India.

Joe Madiath, the founder of our local partner, Gram Vikas, has built an organization focused on equality and human dignity. Through their water and sanitation program, Gram Vikas has helped over 1,000 rural communities break the cycle of poverty by providing access to high-quality water solutions.
Their approach demands a high level of community participation -- every single family, without exceptions, must adopt the Gram Vikas model of total sanitation before the village can receive clean water.
Every family receives the same high quality solution: three taps, a toilet and a shower in their home.
Each family must construct their own toilet and bathing facility before the water system is built.
The community comes together to build a water tower which stores water from a reliable source.
3 taps in
Each household gets three taps with a piped water supply — one in the kitchen, bathroom and shower.
