Sanitation Workers Project

September 2018

The Sanitation Workers Project is a structured, first-of-its-kind 5-month long study of sanitation workers across India carried out by Dalberg Advisors in 2017. The state of sanitation workers remains a blind spot, as workers face significant challenges on multiple fronts – financial, health and social. To develop a blueprint with solutions for this murky problem, we interacted with all the stakeholders – workers across the sanitation value chain, government officials, contractors, NGOs and experts.

Thought Over Design worked closely with the Dalberg team to create and produce this animated video that encapsulates the state of sanitation workers in India. This was launched at World Water Week 2018 in Stockholm, Sweden as an introduction to their keynote address.

Split The List - Teamwork At Home In a Global Pandemic

April 2020

Indian women do 10 times more unpaid care work than men and the COVID pandemic made this much worse. Unpaid work burden on women increased at least an estimated 30%. As schools closed, domestic staff is unavailable, and the elderly are more vulnerable, extra attention is demanded at home – both towards daily chores and caregiving. 

Dalberg, building on their research on time poverty globally, wanted to make the case for a more equal and intentional distribution of unpaid work. Thought Over Design worked on this video to inspire men to shoulder their share of responsibility, give women the confidence to ask men to do their part and collectively #SplitTheList.

Dalberg Asia Residency

October 2020

We worked with Dalberg India to create this video to introduce the Dalberg Asia Residency to individuals with backgrounds in Research Design, Modeling and quantitative analysis, Policy and Advocacy and grassroots experiences. A collage style was developed to bring forth the storytelling aspects of experiences narrated by consultants from the program.
