“As a girl from a nomadic tribe who grew up and lived in a tent in a Mumbai basti, I know how a simple thing like a toilet can impact one’s life deeply. Only someone who doesn’t have one at home can understand this.”

– Deepa Pawar, Founder and thought leader of our Community-Led Data Advocacy and Research model
