About the project Edit

Sarvajal is a mass-market drinking water micro-franchise system launched by the Piramal Water, an initiative from the Piramal Foundation. A decentralized filtration system allows a low-cost and extensive distribution of clean water.

Sarvajal also created a "Water ATM" which allows costumers to buy the quantity of water they desire, which is a great advantage for low-income villagers who don't need or can't afford large quantities of water in one buy. The Water ATM also allows segregated communities to be reached: "For example, in the town of Laxmangarh, Rajasthan, many current customers would not allow the franchisee to serve people from a different community background (mostly butchers) than their own. However, with the Water ATM in place, the community which had previously not been allowed to drink Sarvajal water had a new point of sale that was separate from the existing customers."

In what ways is this project unique and creative? Edit

Sarvajal micro-plant network allows a flexible management of water distribution. Each franchise can adapt to its specific environment. Moreover, the franchises are owned by community members, who better understand the needs of the place where they are located. A franchise system also helps to maintain a certain quality level among all micro-plants.

What is the social value of this project? Edit

Sarvajal is a low-cost and easily scalable way to provide clean water to rural communities. Moreover, its franchise system creates employment opportunities and boosts local economies.
