Water Water everywhere … in Chennai!

In Selaiyur, Tambaram, people belonging to the most economically disadvantaged backgrounds had been buying packaged drinking water for years.

United Way Chennai has joined hands with the local municipality and set up a community RO water plant in the locality. The plant now provides safe and clean drinking water at a fraction of the cost to more than 1000 residents.

This first RO plant was established with support from Wells Fargo. We have since expanded this project to several other localities.
