IWA Global Water Award 2022 announced as Nisha Mandani

Mrs Nisha Mandani, of Our Aim Foundation, based in the USA has been announced as the winner of this year’s IWA Global Water Award. The prize was officially awarded during the Opening Ceremony of the IWA World Water Congress in Copenhagen, Denmark, on 11 September.

IWA’s Global Water Award shines a light on truly outstanding contributions to the water profession and to the world at large. A diverse judging panel evaluated extremely impressive contributions received from around the world.

In deciding to recognise the achievements of Mrs Mandani, the judges noted that she demonstrates “an outstanding profile with clear vision and leadership on the water sector, generating important impacts for vulnerable communities”. They recognised her work as a significant contribution to the provision of water and sanitation across many countries.

Mrs Mandani was born in India, where she experienced first-hand the crippling poverty and prejudice that affects much of the nation. She established Our AIM Foundation 13 years ago to serve as a beacon of light for thousands of vulnerable communities across the Globe. Providing clean water and sanitation facilities is one of Our Aim’s core missions.

Under Mrs Mandani’s leadership, Our AIM Foundation has to date built over 2,000 water and sanitation facilities across Africa and South Asia. Over 300 donors, partners and volunteers have invested time, knowledge, and resources to make this dream a reality.

Among the recognition already received, Mrs Mandani is a twice-recipient of lifetime achievement awards from the President of the United States.
