About Wipro Foundation – Urban Ecology Small Grants Program

The Urban Ecology Small Grants Program supports organizations working on urban ecology challenges in cities like Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, and Pune each year. We collaborate with capable and committed individuals and teams to help them implement on-ground community initiatives in water management in urban areas.

 

Over the past few years, we have tried to incorporate groundwater science-based decisions and tools in conservation, while keeping communities at the heart of knowledge sharing and facilitation. Our knowledge partners BIOME Environmental Solutions and ACWADAM help facilitate community interventions on water.
