In partnership with the Delhi Government, using solar powered panels and micro-ionising water purification process, is producing over 1.8 million litres of drinking water yearly, of WHO standards. Over 1000 school children from economically backward homes are allocated 5 litres of water daily for their families, living in slums nearby.
