LONDON, England – The other day we caught up with Ken Banks from kiwanja.net. On something of a high from the news of receiving a $400,000 grant from the Hewlett foundation, Ken gave us the lowdown on his plans for FrontlineSMS, the software designed to connect rural organisations with participants through SMS.
This is a huge boost for Ken and puts the next generation of FrontlineSMS high up the agenda, with an MMS version due out in the new year, as well as further assistance to NGOs to use the software. Ken also has some interesting ideas kicking around to aid the future sustainability of the project. The video is well worth a few minutes of your time, don’t forget to let us, and Ken, know what you think in the comments below.
