Our well-designed and clean toilets are located close to homes. They are well built in accessible area.
We do not mandate any user to pay. Rather, we motivate them to pay for our services which cost less than INR 1 per day per user for unlimited usage.
We understand users’ needs and wants. We provide services that people
want to use.
We used to think that challenge lies with technology. What we realized eventually was that challenge does not merely lie in technology, but the psychology too.
To enable the urban poor lead healthier, productive, dignified and empowered lives.
We encourage behavior change by converting community toilets into Centers of Empowerment.
We use ICT Technologies, Behavioral Sciences and Human Centered Design to make Sanitation services accessible, affordable and awesome for the Poor
We provide superior designed toilets starting from basic services like lighting and ventilation to sanitary dustbins and kids accessories.
We encourage behavior change via community workshops and door to door surveys.
We transform community toilet blocks into 1-stop Community Centers, which provide life improving value added services to the urban poor.
We believe that team diversity adds creativity, empathy, innovation, creative skills, thoughts, and ideas to the table.
