Driven by the collaboration of Quicksand Design Studio, Jameel Poverty Action Lab, the city governments of two large cities in India, and supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF)Project Sammaan is a development project that seeks to create improved sanitation services for the urban poor residing in slums in India. The challenge seeks to discover radical ideas and new perspectives that will help us in our attempt to reinvent low-cost urban sanitation. The goals is to design and build 119 sanitation facilities in urban slums in India. Collectively, these facilities will have 1200+ toilets, bathrooms, spaces for washing clothes, and will benefit 60,000+ people. The project started in February 2012 and will last for 16-19 months at the end of which these toilets will be operational. The deadline for submissions is May 15.
