Vote in the Global Water Challenge

The Global Water Challenge, a competition put on by Ashoka Changemakers, is taking votes right now on their selected finalists. Titled “Tapping Local Innovation: Unclogging the Water and Sanitation Crisis,” voting for the projects is open until Sunday, May 11.

Ashoka’s Changemakers and Global Water Challenge have partnered to open a worldwide search for ideas and projects that, when scaled-up, have the potential to transform the provision of sanitation and water.

We have covered the lack of access to safe drinking water in India before. There are three finalists out of nine from India – Naandi Foundation, Swayam Shikshan Prayog, and Himanshu Parikh Consulting Engineers. This is an issue that affects many countries, and the project finalists are working on some innovative approaches, from community based initiatives to leveraging technology to working on mechanisms that encourage behavioral change.

Three winners will receive $5000 for their projects. Go here to cast your vote.
