Taarifa, a fork of Ushahidi that was hacked in London at the London Water Hackathon 2011. The project currently only works in Tanzania; but there are plans afoot to make it world-wide compatible. This is designed to enhance the reports system provided by Ushahidi to enable sanitation complaints to be better managed. The main focus was the administrative dashboard, as providing that provides more incentives for governments to take it on board.

Why we are working on this problem:
The current solution (Ushahidi), allows submission of problems with water-related facilities through sms message but there was no way to provide location information in the text message.
What we accomplished during the event:
By creating a location codification system, Taarifa allows a member of the community to submit a problem through sms including a location code that would be on display near the facility.
Wait for the DNS servers to propagate! Currently we are using google's DNS servers; 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168.
