Country Director, Tanzania
Mobile technology is revolutionizing how organizations engage with the people they serve. 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 believes that information is power. We connect individuals and organizations using digital technology to make better decisions.
Having reached more than 21 million people in 2022 and more than 4 million monthly active users, we have our eyes on our goal of reaching 100 million monthly active users by 2026.
We provide organizations with the digital solutions and expertise to meaningfully engage their target audiences on the mobile devices they already have. We do this by disseminating actionable benefits in the form of digital campaigns, digital training, and the Viamo platform - a toll-free gateway to the world with no internet connection required. We also use digital surveys to gather feedback and collect lean data to hear from the people you serve and to support operational decision-making.
Viamo has been in Tanzania since 2016. Tanzania’s mobile penetration rates show a steady increase in recent years. Currently, 81% percent of households own a mobile phone. This is higher than radio or television ownership, which is 49% and 23% respectively. Given Viamo’s use of Interactive Voice Response (IVR), we are uniquely positioned to work in Tanzania, where only 72 percent of men and 67 percent of women can read a whole sentence. In 2022 alone, the Viamo Platform in Tanzania reached over 1.1 million unique users.
