We build accessible sanitation facilities in schools and communities.

This helps girls stay in school, protects women who otherwise have to travel long distances to secluded areas to meet their needs, and improves community well-being by reducing diseases.

We provide assistance beyond constructing facilities

Provide Financial Support

We provide direct funding for building sanitation units, and raise CSR funds for self-construction projects.

Drive Behaviour Change

We work with communities to understand reservations and educate them to make use of sanitation units instead of defecating in the open.

Monitor Usage

We are exploring methods such as access cards to track usage and gain further insights on improving solutions.

Sensitise-2-Sanitise Coalition

We formed the Sensitise to Sanitise (S2S) coalition in 2015 to address the sanitation problem in a more holistic manner. We bring institutions with complementing skills and capabilities together from around the country to address the ecosystem of sanitation and work together on making India open-defecation free. Our efforts have helped over 32 million people so far.


We are a part of a global development goal

United Nations’ 2030 Agenda

The United Nations have identified WASH — (universal, affordable and sustainable access to Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) as one of the key Sustainable Development Goals.

Government of India's Swachh Bharat Abhiyan

As part of the Swacch Bharat Abhiyan, the government of India declared its goal to make India an open defecation free country by October 2019.

Our process is detailed and community-focused

Identify a Community or School

We conduct detailed assessments of communities that need sanitation facilities to determine the best solution.

Select an Implementation Model

We either implementing the program ourselves, or through a network of established partners.

Provide Construction Assistance

When not implementing projects directly, we use our construction expertise to provide technical assistance.

All efforts of Habitat India are supported by independently sourced funding. There is still a lot of work needing support.
