PWX
        increases efficiency with its platform and mobile tools
                      links actions to plans improving accountability
  creates collaboration and quicker learning
                                          is decentralized and scalable
        leading to 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?

A scalable exchange with mobile tools, PWX is the only participatory decision-making system where empowered peers help each other succeed. PWX combines people, process, and technology to increase efficiency, accountability, and collaboration enabling the WASH sector to make a verifiable dent in the global water, sanitation, and sewage crises.
To build toilets is easy, but to shift people's mind and hearts is the real work.

Software is more important than hardware.

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 MetriX and PWX AnalytiX - the first set of business intelligence tools in WASH - enable effortless tracking of projects, portfolios, and impact.
