NAINA LAL KIDWAI
CHAIR, INDIA SANITATION COALITION AND PAST PRESIDENT, FICCI
"For too long, many sanitation programs in India have lived with the reality that the idea is good, but the execution is bad. With improving quality of life, and the Prime Minister himself leading the effort, this is our best chance of succeeding. As a former President of FICCI, it is with great enthusiasm that I welcome FICCI's role in supporting and housing the secretariat for the India Sanitation Coalition. With such a strong organizing body, we can move to a model that encourages collective, result-oriented action, enabling collaboration across all players. Everything is a continuous learning process, and the Coalition membership and value system has embraced this. I'm proud to witness the beginning of a new era where the disparities in sanitation slowly become a thing of the past."
