When COVID-19 hit us, it hit us hard. Many lives were affected. Many businesses went  down, many people lost their jobs, and  a lot of them lost their lives. Government took various steps  to compensate its peoples’ loss. Many schemes were launched, many funds were  raised. A lot of NGOs (Non Government Organization) came forward to help. Every person  helped the needy in whatever way it was possible.

But, are  only humans effected from this? Are only humans dying?

To find the answer, let’s just go for a 2 minute walk down  your street. What did you see? Who else lives in these streets apart from humans?

Yes, stray animals.

Micro Nation is here  with a challenge to design a small living unit for stray  animals (dogs,  cats, cows  etc.)  at street level, where there is facility of dumping your leftovers and vegetable peels for stray animals.


  1. The unit should have the facility of shed for these animals for times like rain and winter.
  2. There is no minimum or maximum area restriction. But the unit size must be conventional for construction in street colonies.
  3. It should be self-sufficient and must not require any official for maintenance. Weekly cleaning by government dirt pickers must do.
  4. It should be a prototype that could be copied wherever needed, with bare minimum changes (if required).


  1. Registration deadline: 25th November, 2020
  2. Submission deadline: 30th November, 2020
  3. Result Announcement: 10th December, 2020

(The following dates can be a subject of modification, if necessary.)
