"Beyond providing clean water for millions of people, we’re helping transform how charities work by providing the highest degree of transparency about donation impact."

Alessandra Mosenifar - Senior Product Designer, Charity: Water

Challenge

Ensure each water project is transparent and accessible so donors, stakeholders and interested users can see what has been funded and the resulting impact.

Solution

Charity: Water created a new way for donors to view exactly where their dollars go. It built an easily digestible map packed with details and visuals for the thousands of water projects completed as each project is represented by an icon on the map. Using sensors to measure water flow per hour (transmitted weekly), it knows if a water point is broken and learn patterns of usage on a daily or yearly basis. Anyone can take a look at project status and details, including the average number of liters of water provided each day.

Benefits

  • Provide the highest degree of transparency about donation impact as donors can see exactly where and how their money is spent
  • Continuously monitor water projects and provide reporting accessible via the Charity: Water website
