Deadline: 23 June 2019
Applicants are invited to apply for the Elrha’s Wash Innovation Challenge: Exploring the Barriers to Inclusion Faced By People Living With Incontinence that aims to build on existing evidence and insights to further understand the barriers to inclusion that people living with incontinence face, so that more holistic, effective and inclusive WASH programmes can be developed.
Elrha is looking to understand the experiences of people living with incontinence and the barriers they face to inclusion in WASH humanitarian programming: including needs assessments, programme design, implementation, and monitoring and evaluation (M&E).
Projects will be at the Problem Recognition stage of the innovation process and will aim to provide a comprehensive and developed understanding of the barriers to inclusion faced by people living with incontinence in a specific humanitarian context.
Elrha is looking to fund innovative projects that:
- Are at the Problem Recognition stage of the innovation process.
- Are able to provide a comprehensive and developed understanding of the barriers to inclusion in humanitarian WASH programming faced by people living with incontinence.
- Are able to articulate the identified barriers as opportunities for innovation for the humanitarian sector.
- Focus on one or more specific humanitarian contexts; both in terms of geographic setting and phase of humanitarian response.
- Approximately £30,000 to £70,000 per project (total funding available: £100,000)
- The projects will run for between 12 and 18 months and the total duration should cover both implementation and dissemination.
Elrha is seeking applications from any legally registered entity (eg, INGO, NGO, UN, academic, private company). Successful applicants must work in partnership with a humanitarian actor. Wherever it is possible, applicants should develop meaningful partnerships with local organisations to support implementation; in particular, with local humanitarian actors and civil society groups (organisations of people with disabilities (OPDs) and older people’s associations (OPAs) ). Any partnerships can be indicative at the Expression of Interest (EOI) stage but must be formalised when the applicant’s full application is submitted if their proposal is shortlisted.
How to Apply
To apply for the Challenge, fill out the Expression of Interest (EOI) through the Common Grants Application platform via given website.
