WaterHealth India launches Jaldhaara Foundation

New Delhi, Jan 3 : Non Profit Organization WaterHealth India (WHIN) on Friday launched the Jaldhaara Foundation with the inauguration of the WaterHealth Center (community water system) at Janawada in Hyderabad.


"Jaldhaara aims to connect social awareness programs with the provision of safe drinking water to underserved communities and schools. The foundation will raise funds to support the programs that will bring about a transformation in the underserved communities, empower women and help school children maintain good health," Jacqueline Lundquist, Chief Serendipity Officer, WaterHealth International said.

"We are pleased to have received donations from Sir Dorabji Tata Trust and the Allied Trusts, 65 U.S. philanthropists including Jon Cryer, John H Williams and Ambassador Richard Celeste, and the support from Apollo Hospitals, Godrej Industries and Taj Hotels," said Lundquist.


Jaldhaara Foundation aims to design and implement social programs that promote safe water awareness, availability and consumption and transform hygiene practices in underserved communities in India by focusing on women and children.

Jaldhaara Foundation (JF) programs aim to create a transformational behavioral change in these communities by focusing on women and children in its programs for communicating the connection between consumption of safe water, hygiene practices and health outcomes. Too often these programs are conducted in isolation leading to an awareness of the benefits of safe water where there is none available and vice versa.
