Safe drinking water initiative - engaging many faiths in India
Shadvi B. Saraswati speaks about the deadly cost of lack of water sanitation and hygiene in many parts of the world. She also stressed the importance of religious leaders focusing on projects and programs rather than just focusing on words and values.
Global Interfaith WASH Alliance is the world’s first initiative that is engaging the planet’s many faiths as allies in efforts to create a world where every human being has access to safe drinking water, improved sanitation and proper hygiene. Shadvi B. Saraswati explains that more people suffer and die from lack of water sanitation and hygiene than from almost all forms of violence combined. In addition to their interfaith work, Global Interfaith WASH Alliance is heavily focused on creating the conditions for people to be able to access to safe drinking water.
