Reap Benefit Foundation is a Bangalore based organisation which works extensively with children in using indigenous technological solutions for waste, water and sanitation issues that affect them. They have been awarded the grant for a project on empowering children as next-generation leaders on waste, water and sanitation concerns.
The project will be embedded in municipal schools in Bangalore, where the organisation’s team will engage in problem identification and solving strategies. These will involve intensive studies to identify issues and trends, and subsequently the development of tailormade and innovative combatant strategies and physical systems. The project is further underscored by its unique, hands-on approach that inspires ownership in children. Over the longer term, the project aims to have a positive impact on school attendances and students health. If successful, the project will be able to showcase how simple, co-developed technologies can spur larger transformative changes in communities.
