Ken Simiyu and I will be representing Grand Challenges Canada at the WASH Canada Campaign Launch on November 15, 2012, in Toronto.

WASH Canada is a national initiative to strengthen the collective Canadian voice and impact on the world water and sanitation crisis. We are looking forward to engaging with you there about the Stars in Global Health program and other exciting developments.

Do you have a Bold Idea with Big Impact in the areas of health-related water and sanitation? If so, you may be eligible to apply for the next round of the Stars in Global Health program.

In this program, applicants apply for proof-of-concept grants of $100,000 with a 12-18 month time-frame. If the concept is proven to be feasible, grantees can apply for additional scale-up grants of up to $1 million with potential linkages to private sector investments. Applications are 2 pages with a 2-minute video.
