Applications are open for the Lead2030 Challenge for SDG 6 – Supported by Reckitt. This challenge seeks to support solutions which work to achieve access to adequate and equitable sanitation and hygiene for all and end open defecation, paying special attention to the needs of rural communities in developing economies where basic infrastructure is still lacking. There should be a particular focus on children, women/girls and those in the most vulnerable.
Applicants should demonstrate impact in at least one of the following areas:
- Incentivize and educate vulnerable females in rural communities to alleviate the practice of open defecation to not only prevent the spread of life threatening diseases but also to empower females to feel safe in their own communities.
- Drive focused behaviour change to ensure good hygiene practice and educate on self-sufficient practices to reduce the spread of preventable disease such as diarrhoea.
- Ensure basic sanitation facilities are not just developed but are sustainable in the long term allowing communities to feel empowered to maintain solutions for generations to come.
