Sarvajal, a for-profit business established in 2008, is looking to expand the reach of clean drinking water in India by making it more accessible. The name of the company literally translates to "water for all."

Sarvajal has a unique business model in that they recruit local entrepreneurs to sell the water in their communities. Through local entrepreneurs acting as franchises on the main brand, Sarvajal has considerably extended its reach within India. Sarvajal believes that franchising is the best possible solution to reach remote areas of areas. Additionally, both the franchise and the company are dependent on how much water is being sold and the level of customer service that is provided.

Sarvajal won Sankalp 2010's health, water and sanitation award for emerging businesses. Sameer Kalwani, the Chief Technology Officer, is excited about the recognition that the award will bring to the clean water drinking cause within India. The award is also reaffirms the Sarvjal's mission in Kalwani because the award was given out by a knowledgeable panel. Sarvajal is hoping to leverage the award for their work into new partnerships with like-minded organizations.

Sarvajal is owned and operated by Piramal Water Private Limited which has been working on drinking water initiatives in India over the years; their initial goal was to reduce the floride contamination within water. Sarvajal, through its business model and focus, has positioned itself to transform the access to clean drinking water in India. Sarvajal's ability to technologically innovate will be a major factor into their future success.
