Text to Change
Since Text to Change’s (TTC) founding early in 2008 we have continuously worked on innovative mobile solutions for development. TTC was the first of its kind in Africa; mobile phones had never been used before on such a large scale for social purposes. TTC has a wide range of experience in conceptualizing, managing and analyzing mobile phone-based programs. We developed a flexible and easily scalable mobile platform, with state-of-the-art tools and techniques, to send out and receive text messages, voice and data.
