Sanitation workers have been the blind spot in India’s march towards sanitation

They are very poorly understood, often clubbed in a nebulous category, and thus continue to face health, economic, and social challenges

Sanitation Workers Summit

Dalberg had hosted a Sanitation Workers Innovation Summit with the purpose of prioritising problems faced by workers and developing concept pilots to address them. Four high potential concepts had emerged from this summit that promise to tackle issues faced by workers across their work-life cycle – from the time they first engage on the job, to regular issues that they face on the job, as well as for those looking to disengage from sanitation work.

Sanitation Workers Innovation Hub

We propose to establish a ‘Sanitation Workers Innovation Hub’ to pilot and scale the highest impact innovative solutions across the country. The Hub will also help crowd-in attention, resources, and funding from ecosystem actors.
