RFP: Transition To Scale

Dear All,
Sharing a RFP that will interest innovators looking to scale. I found descriptions of the following projects that are directly relevant to sustainable sanitation 
  1. Sanitation social enterprise brings sustainable and affordable toilets to scale in Uganda
  2. Delivery of market-led solutions in toilet installation to address mortality and morbidity of children under five by reducing open defecation 
  3. Transforming fecal sludge and biomass residues into charcoal briquettes, a cost-effective approach to reducing diarrheal disease in Kenya
  4. Scaling an affordable and ecological solution to the sanitation crisis in urban Haiti 
The following details are copied from the website  for easy reference
