Jeevika Trust supports livelihoods, WASH and capacity building projects in rural India with a strong focus on women and children. Jeevika is a UK-based charity with an annual income of around £120,000. The organisation partners with five NGO’s in India who take responsibility for project delivery. One of Jeevika’s partners is Jeevan Rekha Parishad (JRP), a women-led organisation in Odisha with experience of working with Tribal communities to improve sanitation and provide safe drinking water.

In 2010 TWF gave Jeevika Trust a grant of £8,000 towards a £33,000 Rural Women’s Livelihood project co-delivered with JRP. This project delivered village and school hygiene training programmes, provided safe water and sanitation facilities and income-generation activities to 1,600 people in two tribal villages in Odisha, and established women’s Self-Help Groups and community groups to manage and sustain the facilities provided.

A second grant of £12,000 was awarded in 2014 to Jeevika for JRP to undertake a one-year project working in two Tribal villages in the Nayagarh District. The project includes awareness raising campaigns and legal training programmes related to water and sanitation rights, as well as training and assisting villagers to install household and school toilets and rainwater harvesting equipment. The project is expected to provide the 550 villagers with improved access to safe drinking water and sanitation facilities leading to fewer incidences of water-borne diseases and improved school attendance.
