Palms for Life is proud to be the fiscal sponsor of The Sanitation Project
The Sanitation Project is an organization responding to the Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi’s Swachh Bharat mission, an initiative that encompasses a goal of building more than 5 million toilets in India by 2019. The Sanitation Project strives further this aspect of the Swachh Bharat by utilizing foreign support. The organization will use these foreign funds to first educate villages on the importance of sanitation and then supply a self sustainable toilet facility. The Sanitation Project was founded by a group of like minded individuals based out of Austin, Texas. After launching the Toilets 4 India mission, many people from various backgrounds requested to volunteer for the cause. As of Oct 15th 2014, two members of the team (see bios below) Nathan Pinto and Marco Pineda have relocated to India and while stationed in Bangalore they plan to execute the first phase of 4 phase plan. THe remaining 10+ members of the organization have remained in the United States to continue building awareness and supporting for operations in India.
