water and sanitation projects.
is decentralized and scalable
uses crowdsourcing                           is transparent
empowers through participatory decision-making
creates verifiable impact
In India, sanitation efforts have failed miserably and everyone is trying to change behaviour at the beneficiary level.
PWX is trying to change institutional behaviour change in the funding and implementing communities - analogous challenges. Its an important question: can the sector cause the impact without changing internally first?

PWX addresses the challenge of scale!
By dividing up the work and increasing the number of expert resources at very low cost,
PWX can manage thousands of small-scale projects for the long-term: from funding to impact.
PWX helps competitors become collaborators; as they work together, learn, and share, we create the impact we desire.
Field tools like SMS and mobile phones combine with PWX AnalytiX - the first set of business intelligence tools in WASH -
enable effortless tracking of projects, portfolios, and verifiable impact.
To build toilets is easy, but to shift people's mind and hearts is the real work.
Software is more important than hardware.
In addition to being the only scalable, map-driven, and transparent platform in the WASH sector,
PWX is the only participatory decision-making system where empowered applicants weigh in on funding decisions.
A collaborative, transparent, and efficient exchange,
PWX combines people, process, and technology to help make a verifiable dent in the global water crises.
