We visited new projects, published new research and worked with new partners. Oh, and we made a film to say thank you to all of you who've helped make FRANK Water what it is today.

Our small organisation aims to address a big problem, providing safe drinking water to the 663 million people worldwide who still lack access to this basic human right.

Award winning social entrepreneur Katie Alcott founded FRANK Water in 2005 after she contracted dysentery from drinking dirty water. Katie realised that by selling her own ethically sourced brand of bottled spring water, she could use the profits to fund safe drinking water for those communities that needed it most. Today, FRANK Water is a registered charity with a trading subsidiary.

CARE in India grew out of a vision of ending poverty and social injustice, and it has been working in India for over 65 years. CARE came to India in June, 1946 when one of its co-founder, Lincoln Clark, signed the CARE Basic Agreement in New Delhi at the Office of Foreign Affairs. The agreement was limited to contributions of technical books and scientific equipment for universities and research institutes.
In November 1949, the first Chief of Mission, Melvin Johnson, arrived in India to establish operations. Subsequently on the invitation of the then President of India, he developed a CARE India Food Package that caused a renegotiation of the CARE Agreement to include importation of food through Indo-CARE Agreement on 6 March 1950. The CARE Office during 1950’s in Delhi was a hutment (a long, thin building) located in Janpath, Connaught Place. At one end of the building was the Australian High Commission to India (A.K.A. Embassy). At the other end was the Delhi Press.
CARE was sandwiched between the two in a two-room office. The Government of India (GOI) rented the space to us for 50 rupees per month, approximately $10. The CARE office consisted of the office manager, the secretary, two clerks, a messenger, and a driver. We had three additional offices and warehouses in India located in Bombay, Madras, and Calcutta — each office administered by an Indian national.


The Academy of Gandhian Studies was founded in 1976. AGS is an apex NGO committed to end injustice, inequality and poverty through promotion of Gandhian principles of Satya, Ahimsa and Dharma in the society. AGS spreads the universal values of truth, non-violence, reconciliation, peaceful co-existence, transcending partisan interests and sectarian identities, in consonance with ‘Vasudaika Kutumbakam’-the universal family of humanity.

AGS believes in promoting sustainable development through the ‘Antyodaya’ (the awakening of marginalized people), Education (in values and relationships), Grama Swaraj (a community approach of individual in society) and Satyagraha (to dissent and struggle for justice). As the transformation was to take place in this frame work, non-violence automatically becomes the sheet anchor of our struggle.

The Academy currently provides the needed leadership to a network of organizations spread across the seven states Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Karnataka, Pondicherry, Tamilnadu, Telangana and West Bengal in working on contemporary issues of Social anomaly.
