India Programme Overview

Through a robust partnership with state, district and community actors, the ‘Promoting Sustainable Sanitation in Rural India’ programme supports efforts to tackle the enormous sanitation challenge in the country. Aiming to be a catalyst for large-scale change, the programme is managed by NRMC India, a private sector company. NGOs, private sector organizations and state networks serve as Sub-grantees, facilitating collective behaviour change within communities in the states of Assam, Bihar and Jharkhand. The programme actively supports and ensures consistency with the Government of India’s ‘Swachh Bharat’ (‘Clean India’) campaign, launched in 2014.
