eWATERpay for sustainable water supply in Tanzania

eWATERpay tap in action

It’s estimated that about a third of water points in Tanzania become non-functional after two years of operation, forcing people to return to using unprotected, unsafe sources.

Several factors contributes to high levels of non-functional water points, but lack of transparent, accountable collection of user is a major reason for enormous delays or under investment in operation and maintenance of rural water schemes because funds are always not available when needed.

eWATERpay offers a remote payment & monitoring technology that eliminates the need to handle cash by using mobile money, offline NFC and IoT server monitors to make fee collection transparent and efficient. This pilot will test eWATERpay’s impact in a rural community in Tanzania.
