Pravah helps the members and other voluntary organisations in empowering communities especially women through awareness creation and active participation of women in planning, implementation and management of water harvesting (or supply) systems.

Pravah promotes decentralised sustainable and equitable drinking water and sanitation system.

Pravah tries to influence Government policies on drinking water and sanitation.

To achieve all these, Pravah has initiated different programmes.

Village Water Availability Monitoring


PRAVAH believes in self reliance through people centered decentralized inclusive systems in drinking water and sanitation. To achieve this, PRAVAH uses different tools such as strengthening systems by Civic Monitoring. Monitoring drinking water availability through SMS (mobile based) on daily basis from citizens is a unique way to monitor the availability at grass root. By publishing this in public domain, PRAVAH intend these data to be used by as many as stake holders who can help to make systems better - people centered decentralized inclusive -for drinking water.    

Given below is a map showing the villages being monitored:
