Skild likes to always recognize competitions that make a difference in our world. One that has held a special place in this online contest software’s heart is the Dreampipe challenge. Its goal is to tackle the issue of controlling non-revenue water (NRW) better in areas that are under developed. One of the largest issues that has to do with NRW is that these water companies don’t have enough finances to sustain themselves. This makes it rather difficult to function properly and thus Ideas to Impact, a program focused on finding solutions to water, sanitation, and energy issues in underdeveloped countries, created the Dreampipe innovation challenge to solve these NRW issues. Ideas to Impact is a program that builds many challenges. One in particular that caught our eye was the Sanitation Challenge for Ghana that focuses on finding a way to manage liquid waste in communities of underdeveloped areas.
Make a change and apply
Receiving and utilizing clean water can be more difficult in locations that are underdeveloped. Ideas to Impact came up with the Sanitation Challenge for Ghana in order to change that. According to the website for the Sanitation Challenge for Ghana, to take part you must implement these guidelines into your plan:
- Eliminate open defecation
- Increase access to basic and hygienic sanitation for all at home, in public buildings (school, health centers, markets) and work
- Improve fecal sludge and wastewater management (pit emptying, transport, safe disposal, treatment and reuse)
- Progressively reduce the sanitation services gap between the rich and poor
Skild is honored to be handling the online contest management for the Sanitation Challenge for Ghana. It is important that we point out when we see something extraordinary happening in the world of challenges so that people everywhere interested may get involved. The more competitions to get noticed, the more likely someone with a remarkable idea on the subject can apply. If you or someone you know happens to have a plan that could blow others out of the water – then apply as soon as you can! The world benefits from innovative ideas so if you have one – share it!
