Our current projects are Aakash Ganga, a rainwater harvesting system that has been implemented in six villages in Northern India, and Arogya, a home health care system that is being launched in 50 villages in Northern India. Before instituting either program, we get on the ground and do an extensive amount of research to get to know the community. That knowledge is what sets us apart, and it's what enables us to make our solutions holistically sustainable.
Sustainable Innovations employs innovations in technology, science and economics to build social enterprises that are holistically sustainable.
Unlike other organizations whose projects rely on cultures adapting to the "solution", we ensure that we adapt our innovations to fit the culture we are serving. We create solutions that work within the confines of the existing community - taking into account everything from cultural norms and traditions to beliefs and economic disparity. In other words, we build a specific solution for a specific community.
“Too often traditions are seen as agents of inertia holding back progress. I believe traditions are cultural capital.”
