The call is for innovative models that open up access to high-impact products for underserved consumers in hard-to-reach rural locations. We are open to applications focused in countries across sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia.
Globally, 663m people do not have access to safe drinking water. We want to identify scalable solutions that build awareness and demand for safe drinking water in highly dispersed rural households across South Asia, particularly Bangladesh and India.
