About WASH Institute

WASH Institute is dedicated to providing and strengthening the capacity and skills of the professionals involved in the sector across India through intensive training. Apart from the capacity-building initiatives for the professionals already associated with the sector, the organization has also given prime importance to grooming students for achieving sustainable water and sanitation solutions.

In addition to the skill and capacity-building initiatives, WASH Institute provides technical assistance to the Government of India for implementing the ‘Swachh Bharat Mission (Urban) and Swachh Bharat Mission (Gramin)’. The organization has been recognized as a national key resource centre (KRC) by the Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation (MDWS), Government of India. The institute is a part of various networks and advisory committees on WASH and houses the Secretariat of the National Faecal Sludge and Septage Management (NFSSM) Alliance.

About the Project

Our current project, “Skill Development in Fecal Sludge and Septage Management (FSSM) in India,” aims to bolster the number of skilled professionals in the WASH sector at various levels across the country. Through targeted training programs and certificate courses on FSSM, delivered both in classrooms and online, WASH Institute seeks to enhance access to safely managed disposal services.

The project’s ultimate goal is to empower Urban Local Bodies (ULBs) to efficiently address FSSM challenges through data-driven planning and execution. By creating a knowledge management database, we aim to bridge the knowledge gap in the sector and support activities for effective WASH delivery.
