The Change We Seek®

Abhati seeks to create and promote a balanced healthy lifestyle. A commitment to social responsibility is central to Abhati’s identity and purpose. They aim to change the sanitation situation of rural areas in India and other countries, where hygiene and sanitation is very poor. Due to lack of toilets children have to go to fields for bathroom, which creates dangers for young and teenage girls in particular, which makes them avoid school, and so remain uneducated. Lack of hygiene also causes avoidable disease, and more children die from diarrhea every day than from HIV, measles and TB (tuberculosis).

Each purchase of an Abhati product supports this cause and promotes education and health in India and around the world. To support this cause they have also included local NGO’s to improve hygiene and health education programms, with help from University in Zurich, Abhati is developing a concise hygiene programme for all our schools.

What makes us a better company?
