FrontlineSMS Founder Ken Banks has received generous funding awards from both Ashoka and the Pizzigati Prize, and FrontlineSMS was also honored to receive the Curry Stone Design Prize. You can read more about this support on our Awards page.
Altogether these relationships with organizations dedicated to mobile for development have helped further FrontlineSMS’ mission of empowering people to drive social change with mobile technology.
We are also whole-heartedly grateful to Tim Howe of Knowhowe Ltd, who in the many years we’ve worked together, has time and again leapt into the breach to help solve website problems, late flurries of launch activity, and help deliver odd requests at very odd times. Our thanks.
