This proposal cites a lack of access and storage of safe water and sanitation resources, a lack of training, availability and/or awareness of technologies, limited philanthropic dollars and lack of local demand as major challenges. The team recommends focusing on high-need urban areas to develop several micro franchise systems, leveraging partnerships and private investment dollars to build the necessary infrastructure while empowering community members to participate in the solutions.
