$50,000 Grant to Support Households Education Initiatives in Sustainable Development

One Young World is announcing the launch of the global competition supported by Reckitt Benckiser (RB) Company that aims to achieve the sixth goal of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The focus of this Competition includes increasing water-use efficiency within the household and driving responsible water usage forward, in order to substantially reduce the number of people suffering from water scarcity and also preventing future water crises.

Eligibility Criteria:

  1. Aligned: Evidently aligned with the SDG6 challenge.
  2. Youth-led: Founded by a person aged 18 – 30.
  3. Focused: Well-structured time horizon, identified key stakeholders and beneficiaries, and proposed outcomes that are reasonable and well thought out
  4. Proven: Readily available, in or past implementation phase.
  5. Impactful: Solutions must have a positive social impact, for example generating employment, or developing skills.
  6. Measurable: Impacts of solutions must have been adequately measured and/or be measurable.
  7. Financially viable: Must be able to achieve efficiency and to survive independently through the resources they generate and/or the investments and donations they attract.
  8. Scalable: Potential to perform as well or better after expanding in scope or size and/or being transported to other regions.

Competition Purposes:

This competition seeks to support initiatives that:

  1. Educate households especially in countries and regions at greatest risk to the consequences of water scarcity.
  2. Drive innovative ways to reduce water within households. This can be done through focused behavioral change methods or technological innovation – the key is that it must allow for practical execution and be scalable and accessible.
  3. Ensure proposals are not just developed for short term benefits but hold sustainable long-term objectives too. These are changes that should be passed on to future generations.


The winning solution will receive:

  1. A US$50,000 grant from RB.
  2. 12 months of mentorship from a team of RB professionals. The mentorship team will work to accelerate your solution based on the needs of your initiative or organization, such as:
  • Business strategy.
  • Best practices for data collection.
  • Monitoring and evaluation.
  • Product design.
