Welcome to Sustainable Innovations
Breaking Myths, Building Lives.
We employ innovations in technologies, sciences, and economics to build social enterprises that are holistically sustainable – culturally, socially, institutionally, operationally, and economically. These enterprises provide safe drinking water to and low-cost health care to rural villages and urban slums.
Our two initiatives are: Aakash Ganga, or River from Sky, harvests domestic rainwater in the water-scarce rural regions. Arogya, or kiosk-based clinic, provides health care for common ailments and preventable diseases to rural villages and urban slums. Click here to learn about our sustainability approach.
