Gramalaya Urban and Rural Development Initiatives and Network (GUARDIAN) is a not-for-profit organization working in water and sanitation in India. It was founded in Raja Colony, Trichy in 2007 by the non-governmental organization Gramalaya, which had preciously been working in the same field in for over twenty years in the Tiruchirapalli District.

Working through micro loans and micro credit, GUARDIAN targets poor communities by installing sanitation and water systems in various locations and in the home. This is an example of part of the larger international development industry that attempts to "make sanitation sexy" in the midst of other causes that tend to get more attention.
