Created through a robust rural voice of customer execution, Xylem’s “Saajhi” pump, Hindi for ”partnership,” represents the first product in our planned Essence of Life portfolio. Now available to the market.

Saajhi Stepping Pump


Xylem’s Saajhi Stepping Pump is a product designed specifically for the smallholder farmer. Through Xylem's Essence of Life (EOL) initiative, the Saajhi Stepping Pump helped Xylem receive a certification that qualifies it for Indian rural government programs. The Certification Report, issued by the Indian State Level Farm Machinery Training and Testing Center, is given by the Ministry of Agriculture's Department of Agriculture and Cooperation in Odisha, India.



As a member of an industry that uses 70% of the world’s water resources, you understand that quality, delivery and management of water are critical to your success. Your bottom line depends on it and so do the health and well-being of people around the world. 

That’s why agriculturalists and producers rely on Xylem’s total solutions to supply water, treat wastewater and analyze, even under the most challenging conditions. ​




Our Essence of Life program is a sustainable business model with potentially game-changing benefits for the populations at the base of the economic pyramid, as well as for the large array of NGO and other citizen-sector organizations whose mission it is to fight poverty and support rural development. 

According to World Bank Development Indicators, today, 2.5 billion people around the world live on less than $2.50 a day. There is enormous need for, and enormous economic upside potential in, affordable, field-serviceable irrigation systems across the developing world.

For us and for other global OEMs with agriculture-focused products, as well as our partners in the citizen organizations, the value proposition is one and the same. Empowering the farmer.​​
