India is the largest open defecating nation in the world, where almost 600 million people have no access to sanitation which has a detrimental impact on the health, education, financial security, and safety of people living in informal communities.

Shelter Associates facilitate access to sanitation in informal settlements by: (1) setting up a very robust spatial data platform to pinpoint families who lack access to basic sanitation, (2) facilitating the construction of individual toilets, (3) conducting workshops to increase awareness within the community of environmental issues, (4) providing a forum for sanitation issues to be discussed and (5) establishing solid waste collection system


Together, our goal is to raise USD 20,000. To ensure we achieve our targets, we request each individual to fundraise USD 2,000 so that together, we can succeed.

This challenge is pending approval by the Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities Department
