THE ONE DROP FOUNDATION IS SEEKING PROPOSALS FOR RESEARCH PARTNERSHIPS TO STRENGTHEN OUR UNIQUE INTERVENTION MODEL AND ITS IMPACT TOWARDS THE SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS
THE ONE DROP FOUNDATION
The One Drop Foundation (www.onedrop.org) is a philanthropic organization rooted in learning and sharing. We envision a better world, where all have access to living conditions that allow for empowerment and development. We support initiatives with the aim of systems change, to create sustainable well-being for the most vulnerable. We believe that people are at the heart of change and that this change can be attained by:
a) increasing access to water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services;
b) increasing the practice of key WASH behaviours with the Social Art for Behaviour Change™ (SABC) approach; and
c) strengthening local economies to maintain access to WASH services and products.
PURPOSE AND OVERALL PROCESS
The One Drop Foundation intends to collaborate with researchers who are interested in pursuing opportunities in applied social sciences. Together with researchers, the One Drop Foundation wishes to improve its contribution to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) looking towards 2030.
1.Evaluating the impact of our projects through an experimental design with participatory action research.
2. Documenting how the SABC approach developed by the One Drop Foundation is an effective behaviour change methodology.
