Gender Specialist and Programs Support, Ghana

About Viamo

Mobile technology is revolutionizing how organizations engage with their end users. More than 96% of the world’s

population has access to a mobile phone, meaning it is now possible to reach nearly every single person on the

planet. Yet 3 billion people living in emerging markets still lack access to relevant, timely, and engaging information

in their local languages, and their voices remain underheard. The organizations that serve them lack the technology

and capacity to reach them, and many are unaware of the power of mobile technology to meet their organizational

goals.

Viamo connects individuals and organizations using digital technology to make better decisions.

With more than 18 million people reached in 2018 alone, we are well on our way to meeting our goal of reaching

50M people annually by 2023.
