Pani Haq Samiti (PHS) is a Mumbai-based people’s campaign for Universal Access to Water and Sanitation. Over 2 million of Mumbai’s residents are denied legal water connections. Not only is this a violation of their Right to Water, but also compromises public hygiene – an issue that requires urgent attention especially in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. Over the last decade, PHS members have been actively involved in informal settlements across Mumbai towards getting water and sanitation access to communities that are denied this right. We work in 17 of 24 wards in Mumbai. Our work focuses on creating awareness in the communities regarding water access and people’s legal rights with respect to water connections. Beyond this, we also facilitate filling applications for stand-post connections and train people to follow-up their applications. We have made significant progress in legal advocacy that has led to the formation of a more inclusive water policy in Mumbai, and continue to push for policy reform.
Towards achieving this goal, we need your monetary support. Yearly costs of sustaining the campaign are approximately 12 Lakhs INR, these include honorarium for team members, travel costs, stationery and training costs, etc.
Join us in social solidarity!
