It sponsors a wide range of activities and work with many partners, including families, communities, governments and like-minded organisations. In emergencies it provides urgent relief to communities and nations threatened by disrupted water supplies and disease. Without WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene), sustainable development is impossible.

  1. Post Graduate Diploma Programme in Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH)

The water and sanitation sector plays a key role in the human well being and overall development of any society across the globe. It is inherent part of the development agenda for developing countries like India where millions even today lack access to basic water and sanitation services. Achieving universal sanitation i.e. access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation services have been identified as one of the key targets according to the Millennium Development Goals (United Nations). Central Rural Sanitation Programme (CRSP) launched countrywide Total Sanitation Campaign (TSC) programme in the year 1999. For effective implementation of the programme the state governments have created special cells/units at state and district level. The primary aim of these institutional arrangements is regular monitoring and supervision of various sanitation programmes. Recently the Government of India has also introduced a Rural Sanitation and Hygiene strategy with the objective to create Nirmal Bharat by 2022 under Nirmal Bharat Abhiyan.
