Arghyam is a public charitable foundation set up in 2001 with a personal endowment from
Rohini Nilekani, working in water and sanitation in India. Arghyam works in partnership with individuals, organisations and governments to create, promote and sustain ideas and efforts towards achieving its vision of safe, sustainable water for all.
The emphasis, of all that we do at Arghyam, is on equity and sustainability. Addressing the issues of the poor and the vulnerable in accessing water for their basic daily needs is a priority for us. Addressing these issues in a manner that is environmentally sustainable is important if the outcome is to be effective over time. We believe that the key to achieving this is in better water management, which requires effective governance.
