Network and data engineer
CityTaps is a social start-up whose vision is running water in every urban home, to boost the health, dignity and productivity of the urban poor in developing countries.
CityTaps has developed a service, CTSuite, that bridges the gap between water utilities and the urban poor: a prepayment service that integrates mobile payment systems with the world's only smart and prepaid water meter.
CTSuite helps water utilities become financially independent and able to invest in infrastructure to bring at-home water service to even the poorest residents.
On the other end, residents use mobile money to prepay for running water with any mobile phone, at any time, for any amount. Running water in the home is substantially cheaper, more convenient, and healthier than any alternative and beneficiaries improve their household budget.
Our innovative solution has the potential to dramatically and quantifiably improve the lives and well-being of a billion urban people who do not have access to water in the home. It is our goal to work together to make access to running water in every urban home a reality.
