Training on Household Water Treatment and Safe Storage


We are glad to invite you all to an upcoming Workshop on Household Water Treatment and Storage (HWTS) to be held from 1st-4th March'17 in Samastipur, Bihar.

India Water Partnership promotes and facilitates capacity building activities and implementation of innovative but low cost feasible solutions for ensuring safe drinking water to the communities which do not have access to potable water. These innovative solutions not only ensure safe drinking water to the local communities but also positively influence livelihood by promoting entrepreneurship among them.
Encouraged from the responses received from training sessions held in Aug-Sept'16 on Household Water Treatment and Storage (HWTS), hosted by IWP network partner organization SM Sehgal Foundation in Gurgaon, we wish to scale up the exercise by taking it to other states as well so that our other valuable partners can be benefited from this highly informative and goal oriented workshop.

To take forward our combined efforts in this direction, Centre for Affordable Water and Sanitation Technology (CAWST), Canada, (a pioneer for designing and promoting the biosand filter) along with S M Sehgal Foundation, India (Sehgal Foundation, a rural development organization) and India Water Partnership (IWP, a  Country Water Partnership of Global Water Partnership, Stockholm, Sweden) have come together yet again to offer a similar capacity building training program in March 2017 in Samastipur, Bihar.

If safe drinking water is a concern in the communities you work for, this training program is a must for you to attend to develop understanding and know-how on sustainable house hold water solutions. The training program will be an opportunity for organizations working on providing access to safe drinking water to communities in need. 
Some of the participants from our last workshops have already started putting their learning into practice, and few of us are planning to work in that direction. Kudos to all the participants for keeping the momentum going!

Mark your calendars!
