Sanitation Workers Project

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.
