About the workshop

Safe drinking water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) is the basic need for leading a healthy and dignified life. Marginalized communities in India still struggle with waterborne diseases, mostly due to unsafe drinking water and WASH behavior. According to a Joint Monitoring Programme (JMP) Report by WHO in 2021, two billion people across the globe lack safely managed WASH services. 

S M Sehgal Foundation, India, in partnership with CAWST, Canada, is hosting a three-day training workshop to build capacities on the biosand filter, an effective and sustainable household-level safe drinking water solution. 

The workshop will provide the required knowledge on technology of biosand filter, how it works and its maintenance. The workshop will deliver knowledge on JalKalp biosand filter, preparing the filter media and installing the filter, and operation and maintenance.
