Access to sustainable water and sanitation remains a central issue to development of India. Despite serious commitments from successive governments and civil society, challenges in sustainability and usage of the infrastructure created, efficient and effective decentralization, and reaching out to those normally excluded still exist. Established in 2010, the Jal Seva Charitable Foundation (JSCF) ensures that safe water, sanitation and hygiene becomes a reality for all, including the poorest and excluded communities of our country. We work in close coordination with the government, and the non-governmental organisations, groups, campaigns and clubs to broaden the base of programmes in the field and enable greater local relevance and impact.
JSCF is promoted as an Indian not-for-profit under Section 25 of the Companies Act 1956 and is an associate member of WaterAid
