GUARDIAN - Gramalaya Urban And Rural Development Initiatives And Network
Gramalaya Urban And Rural Development Initiatives And Network (GUARDIAN), a not for profit entity, registered under Sec.25 of the Companies Act 1956 (now it is Sec.8 of the Companies Act 1956) was established on 06.11.2007 exclusively to address the need of poorer societies to create household infrastructures on water and toilet facilities to have easy access with financial support under microfinance.
In India, traditional financial institutions such as MFIs, NBFCs, Nationalized / commercial / private banks and local money lenders are in the field of micro lending operations among the poorer communities both in rural and urban for livelihood promotion, income generating activities, consumption loans etc., But, no institution in India engaged in lending operations for the creation of drinking water connections and house hold toilets for the poorer communities in urban and rural. Access to safe drinking water and toilet facilities at the households are still inadequate. Hence, addressing the need of the communities which lacks household water and toilet facilities requires financial support for creating such infrastructures at household level.
Join the community that is committed to making a difference in the world we share.
