It was great to find this discussion thread! At the moment I'm really interested in finding out about any projects using FrontlineSMS in the water and sanitation sector. I've already found two examples - one on irrigation pumps another on IOM's work in the aftermath of the Pakistan floods last year. I'm really excited to hear about any more similar case studies from the community.
Can anyone in this thread who's already shared information about their projects offer an update - are you still using FrontlineSMS?
Otherwise I'd be interested to hear from anyone working in this sector and using (or thinking of using) text messaging. If possible please can you give some examples of SMS sent and received? How does this help you reach more people or save you time/money? Is the purpose of messages focused on behavioural change / offering information / organising logistics etc? What other advantages are there?
If you are prepared to offer any more detailed information and potentially write a blog post please get in touch.
Hi Amy, hi everybody,I was looking for info on Frontline use in the WASH sector and bumped into this old but interesting thread.
Have you been able to identify other projects than the ones mentioned here?
