What do we do ?

We work at the intersections of Climate Change, Health and WASH to build resilient communities in vulnerable regions.

Climate change is the most pressing challenge of our times. We design our Health and WASH programmes keeping climate action and the people we work with at our core.

We started working on our Menstrual Health project in Assam, a flood prone state in India, to reach more than 7500 women through our special education module which was designed and customised after an extensive survey covering more than 400 women.

Our Promoters and Board are individuals with roots in Assam who want to change the story of negativity about the state through community projects which bring out the resilience of people and create best practices for other states with similar fragile histories.

Our Mission

To ensure people living in natural disaster prone, fragile and vulnerable areas  have access to the highest quality of healthcare and WASH facilities through community-driven, inclusive and sustainable projects.

Our Vision

To build resilient and healthy communities which are equipped to face the critical challenges posed by the climate crisis.
