Africa: PamojaConnect integrates the web and SMS for villagers

A new project in Africa connecting the web and SMS (PamojaConnect) for villagers, “Now someone in the who lives in a remote village in Kenya has never used a computer or the internet, but they have access to a mobile phone. With PamojaConnect that message is integrated as if they used a computer. It is posted live to Pamoja where it shows up on the Google Map and is broadcast on Twitter. The message is now public and people from all over can respond.”
