Introduction The M4W project aims to improve water and sanitation in rural parts of Uganda by enabling access to information by various stakeholders and players in the Water and Sanitation sector. Using mobile phones baseline and inspection information is collected about each water point using the Ministry of Water and Environment guidelines and standards.

In addition, each water point is labeled with a unique identifier enabling members of the community to report faults by send text messages. The M4W project received a seed grant from African Transparency Technology Initiative in 2011 to develop and implement in three districts.

It has since been deployed in 7 districts, monitoring an estimated 8,000 water points and has attracted a number of NGOs Water and Sanitation sector, MWE and Local Governments who form part of the M4W Consortium
