IWSH IN Locations IWSH IN Communities IWSH IN Works

IWSH has partnered with the Indian Plumbing Association and the WorldSkills Foundation to design and build new sanitation facilities for a government school in Nashik, Maharashtra.

At IAPMO, we measure our success in lives, water and total lifecycle costs saved, contributing to strong healthy communities. Our non-profit arm, the International Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Foundation (IWSH) assembles teams of skilled plumbing volunteers to improve access to water, sanitation and hygiene for a variety of communities in need. We connect with local leaders, governmental and nonprofit partners, labor organizations, and manufacturers.
