Africa Water Enterprises will repair broken water systems and install eWATERtaps in villages in rural Gambia
Africa Water Enterprises will repair broken water systems and install eWATERtaps in villages in rural Gambia. Users buy eWATERcredit either directly onto NFC phones or via women water entrepreneurs using a tag and pay $0.09 cents per 20 litres. An App will allow retailers to buy credit direct from QCell via SMS text and convert this to water credit. Funds are used to pay for professional maintenance and repairs with the aim of overcoming the tragedy of broken water supply systems in villages.
