Program Manager, Haiti

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 in public debates, surveys, and policymaking. The organizations that serve them often lack the technology and capacity to reach them, and many are unaware of the power of mobile technology to meet their organizational goals.

Viamo is leading a global movement of nonprofits, governments, and businesses who want to communicate with the people they serve via mobile. We envision a world where all people have access to the information they need to make decisions for healthy, prosperous lives. Viamo connects individuals and organisations using digital technology to make better decisions. With more than 30.5 million people reached in 2020 alone, we are well on our way to meeting our goal of reaching 50M people annually by 2023.
