SMS Me Back


Crisis Statement

Local governments not aware of the central government policies, circulars, transfers, guidelines, programs related to sanitation


Needs Statement

Develop a system to inform & gain feedback from local governments on central government initiatives. Most local governments do not have access to the internet but do have high access to simple mobile phones. We need to develop a system to graph / map local government responses to specific multiple choice questions via SMS. Additional resources needed: mobile phone numbers of local government chairs & members, BTRC registered SMS short code, GIS files of UPs & pourashavas.


Short Description

Local governments are not aware of sanitation policies.
