In our last newsletter, we asked you to submit photos that capture your initiatives related to sanitation and hygiene so that we could showcase your work and share the winning photo with all members. We recognize that in addition to guiding and supporting our work over the last 25 years, many of you have taken part in your own unique, innovative work that is aligned with the WSSCC’s vision of a world where every person, everywhere, has a right to quality sanitation.


We are pleased to announce Dr. Preeti Aggarwal, Corporate Social Responsibility Lead at Viom Networks Limited, as the winner of the February 2016 members’ photo contest! We chose to feature Dr. Aggarwal’s group photo because it shows how we can inspire change in our communities by working together to create awareness on responsible waste management and hygiene. The photo features volunteers in Gurgaon, India, with the My-Bin project.  The project is part of a social responsibility initiative led by Dr. Aggarwal, which aims to tackle the interconnected issues of sanitation and waste reduction in urban areas. The project promotes a comprehensive approach that extends beyond waste bin distribution to include collection efforts and stakeholder sensitization.

We encourage members to continue submitting their photos and success stories, which are aligned with WSSCC’s work. They will be reviewed by WSSCC on a rolling basis and featured in our upcoming newsletters and social media channels! Please send your content to
