The Project

Data4WASH is an interactive online platform designed for open source use. Verified data generated from the GPS coordinates is curated onto the WASH map and used to make a case for driving investment into design and installation of proper WASH facilities like improved waste treatment plants and handwashing facilities .

The platform highlights areas in need of water improvement facilities while showcasing areas that have achieved improved wastewater treatment practices.

More About Data4WASH

Justification

Every community deserves to be able to access clean, safe and affordable drinking water, and water for domestic purposes. However in low-income regions and underdeveloped communities this is a dream. Over 790 million people globally lacking access to safe water while an estimated 1.8 billion people (25% of the world’s population) are without access to adequate sanitation.

Goal

The project aims to empower communities around the world to raise their voices and hold local leaders and governments accountable for service delivery of basic amenities like safe drinking water and sanitation facilities including toilets and waste treatment facilities. 

Why Data

Data is an important tool in our daily lives. From social media to analyzing growth trends and making forecasts, data has become integral to helping us make decisions. As we continue to interact with this data, there is also an opportunity to leverage the information around us for good. Data4WASH is formed around the concept that Big Data can change the way we view challenges and ultimately how we solve them.
