CityTaps is to be commended for their innovative solution to an intractable problem. Their commitment to helping people in villages without affordable access to safe water is impressive. CityTaps is literally changing lives in these Niger villages - not only does the CT’s water meter/mobile pay solution bring water to their homes in affordable increments but by eliminating the need for young people to walk miles to buy and carry home cans of water (of questionable cleanliness), these young people can now attend school and get an education. The intertwining of these two aspects of CityTaps solution sets them apart in the world of social entrepreneurs. Educating the next generation provides opportunity and a path out of urban poverty. CityTaps work is precisely the type of work that needs to be supported with resources so they can expand their operation broadly to help all those in need. Bravo CityTaps!
