The annual ICT4D Conferences have proven to be an invaluable opportunity for NGOs, private sector organizations, universities, governmental agencies and foundations to share their experience in using ICT to increase the impact of development programs and to learn from each other.  In 2016, 715 individuals from 76 countries and 301 private sector and public sector and civil society explored the ways to harness the full power of digital solutions to achieve the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.  Our thanks to Accenture, Catholic Relief Services, Esri, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, iMerit Technology Services, Inmarsat, IS Solutions, Making All Voices Count, Mercy Corps, Microsoft, NetHope, Oxfam, Pandexio, Qualcom Wireless Reach, RTI International, SimbaNet and World Vision for making that possible.

Limited Capacity seats available

More and more projects and organisations are failing to achieve their key goals and deliver their project objectives due to communication problems and cost. FrontlineSMS is a tool that can reach any and everyone and can now recreate complex and bespoke workflows to save time, money and a lot of 'offline' effort.

Frontline's CTO of 3 years will lead a tech-focused presentation and demonstration of the full power of the latest FrontlineSMS app including automations, APIs, mobile money and everything in between.

Using SMS management tools allow for SMS messages to be sent, received and managed in such a way that systems can be configured to react to (in)correct answers, trigger something every Monday at 9am or Friday at 3pm, track pupils' and even teachers' progress. All in a scalable and localizable way

SMS is a low cost structured form of digital communication accessible to anyone with even the most basic of mobile phones. Common sharing of phones across families and villages means that it is often claimed that SMS has ~100% global penetration. Reaching more communities is easy only with SMS and if "access and quality cannot be decoupled" then it is a big part of the future.

FrontlineSMS as an organization has 10 years of global experience working withorganizations in the educational sector. With successful projects across Africa, Asia, Latin America and more we provide and help to utilize technology platforms across many sectors.
