FRONTLINESMS ALLOWS YOU TO TEXT
MESSAGE WITH LARGE GROUPS OF
PEOPLE ANYWHERE THERE IS A MOBILE
SIGNAL.

A lack of communication can be a major barrier for grassroots nongovernmental organisations (NGOs) working in developing countries.
FrontlineSMS is the first text messaging system created exclusively with
this problem in mind.
By leveraging basic tools already available to most NGOs — computers and
mobile phones — FrontlineSMS enables instantaneous two-way
communication on a large scale. It’s easy to implement, simple to
operate, and best of all, the software is free. You just pay for the

“We want people to know that if they are trying to rig the election,
there could be someone behind them and that person may send a
text message saying what happened.”
— Emauwa Nelson, Human Emancipation Lead Project, Nigeria

messages you send in the normal way.
“Based in Africa in a country where broadcast technology is
controlled by a dictatorial government, this software has enabled
me to communicate with the public at large. I am able to run my
project without drawing unnecessary attention to myself—a good
thing in this neck of the woods.”

What it does?

Ushahidi is a free and open source project with
developers hailing from Kenya, Ghana, South
Africa, Malawi, Netherlands and the USA
working on it. There are some significant
technological challenges and we are always
looking for help.

The Ushahidi Engine is a platform that allows
anyone to gather distributed data via SMS,
email or web and visualize it on a map or
timeline. Our goal is to create the simplest way
of aggregating information from the public for
use in crisis response.

The software allows text messages to
be mapped by time and location. It was
developed to track reports of ethnic
violence in Kenya in 2008. Suddenly
mere words can create a moving picture
of where violence started and where it
intensified.
