Communications.  The 'C' in 'ICT4WASH'.  This low-cost wireless access point creates a local hotspot, and communicates with antennas that transmit a wifi signal over long distances.  This creates a wireless mesh network which can be used for both communications and monitoring of services.

Welcome to the first ICT4WASH Newsletter of 2018!


The ICT4WASH Community emerged in 2017 as a platform for international cooperation and capacity-building between water and sanitation-related organizations and individuals in over 18 countries.  

Since then we have developed online eLearning courses, a newsletter, facebook group and have over 1100 people in our network from 34 countries

Many have reached out to with us with fantastic ideas on what ICT4WASH should offer in the coming year and beyond. More courses, more discussions and webinars, more information on ICT-related projects around the world....

Do you have 2 minutes to give us your thoughts as well? If so, please fill out this quick (seriously, very quick) survey!!!

Best Regards,

The ICT4WASH Team

New Course Announcement!

We are very excited to announce the launch of the brand new course:
 

 ICT4WASH310 - Mobile Money Payments for Utility Service Providers

The GSMA and Wakoma Incorporated have teamed up to develop this 3-week eLearning course based on the GSMA's Mobile Money Payment Toolkit.

Course Dates: April 9th-27th

This course was built to support utility service providers in deploying mobile money payment solutions.  It provides guidance on key questions around implementation of a mobile money platform, including when and how to approach integration, making the business case, as well as general considerations around legal requirements, customer experience and education.

All case studies, research and funding for the development and implementation of this course were provided by the GSMA. The course is free to attend for all participants.
