Open call for FINISH Mondial Sanitation Challenge.

FINISH (Financial Inclusion Improves Sanitation & Health) Mondial (www.finishmondial.org) is an ambitious, 6-country WASH program aiming to substantially scale up the access and use of safe sanitation in Africa and Asia. FINISH started in India (2009) with the aim of building a local system to deliver sanitation services on a large scale.

About the Challenge

This contest is based on one of the key fundamentals of the FINISH program: the need to reduce the costs of sanitation systems. The design is targeted to incrementally lower the cost of sanitation systems. We are NOT looking for big technology breakthroughs, but small improvements in existing designs that can reduce the cost of construction or at the same cost, improve its usefulness and client satisfaction.


  • First prize: € 3,000 + actual implementation of your solution in one of the FINISH Mondial countries (other than the country you have first worked out the solution).
  • Second prize : € 2,000
  • Third prize: € 1,000

Preferred Areas 

FINISH Mondial has selected several sanitation technologies. FM focuses and widely implements the following three onsite sanitation systems.


  • Cost reduction in material use, including the use of cheap but quality materials.
  • Cost reduction in terms of less wastage.
  • Cost reduction in terms of less number of people engaged (Time or absolute number).
  • Speed (time) of construction lead to a reduction in cost.
  • The simplicity of construction /installation of (part of) a sanitation system.
  • Consideration of sludge management (such as simplicity of emptying, onsite treatment, etc.)
  • Climate elements (water usage and carbon footprint of materials used).
  • Suitability for the environment and context it is designed for.
  • Amenability to local modifications.
  • Aesthetics and appeal.

A first selection and evaluation will be made by the Technical working group under FINISH Mondial. From the solutions presented they will make a shortlist of 5 – 8 solutions. The shortlist will then be passed on to an international jury comprising of specialists in the sanitation field.
