Globally 2.3 billion people lack access to basic sanitation services, 1.4 million children die every year globally due to unsafe sanitation and water. Moreover, there are about 120000 people migrating to urban areas every week globally, which is putting tremendous pressure on inadequate public service infrastructure, which is mostly improperly maintained. It requires the intervention through new age technologies and innovative business models to provide equitable access to the underserved.
