I like your idea. How much water can it collect...is there a minimum roof size required to meet the needs of one family?

Thanks Shane,
Not sure if I wanted to add the 100 Cameras idea to this concept just yet, but I thought it is a good idea to add photos to this documentation system. I also noted that the phone is an amazing device as sent information knows no gender. You made me wonder though, how many of the phones in a Slum community are accessible by women? I have no examples of how this idea has been piloted in the field, but I like the pilot project done by (http://thethingsnetwork.org) in Amsterdam and feel that it may be quite transferable in a Slum.

Thanks for the input Simon - I have updated the proposal to include Google Translate and voice to text based on some ideas outlined in "Wiki Slum".
