About Tata Trusts

            Since inception in 1892, Tata Trusts — India’s oldest philanthropic organisation — have played
            a pioneering role in bringing about an enduring difference in the lives of communities across
            the country. Guided by the principles and the vision of proactive philanthropy of Tata group
            founder Jamsetji Tata, the Trusts’ purpose is to catalyse development in the areas of health,
            nutrition, education, water, sanitation and hygiene, livelihood, digital transformation, migration
            and urban habitat, social justice and inclusion, environment and energy, skill development,
            sports, and arts and culture. The Trusts’ interventions, achieved through a strategic mix of direct
            implementation, partnerships and grant making, are made sustainable by technology, advocacy
            and community engagement.

                              About Tata Water Mission

               Tata Water Mission (TWM) is a programme initiated by the Tata Trusts in 2015 to tackle the
               country’s water crisis with a multi-pronged approach. The Mission aims to address the critical
               need for Water, Sanitation and Health (WaSH), including menstrual health.
                   The Tata Water Mission team aims for sustainable change at scale by using the traditional
               strengths of community mobilisation and capacity building, along with the power of innovative
               approaches and technological solutions.
                   Today, Tata Water Mission has a direct presence in 15 Indian states that have been
               identified as having high-to-extremely-high water stress areas. The programmes cover more than
               5,500 villages and benefit around four million people through initiatives for safe drinking water,
               assured water sources, improved sanitation services and hygiene practices.
                   This report aims to document valuable findings, learnings and experiences of the Tata Water
               Mission’s interventions for Menstrual Health & Hygiene Management in several Indian states.
