Description
This workshop brings together civil society organizations (CSOs) that use Verboice, InSTEDD’s open-source platform, that makes it easy to create and run projects that interact via voice. Invited speakers will talk about best practices and challenges to implement interactive voice response projects. This event also serves as a vehicle for CSOs to explore the examples of using mobile tech to expand the reach and impact of health, humanitarian efforts, and development.

Our Speakers: Project managers from: BBC Media Action, Open Institute (OI), Marie Stopes International (MSI), People in Need (PiN), International Labor Organization’s Better Factory Cambodia, Coalition for Road Safety (CRY), Reproductive Health Association of Cambodia (RHAC) & MoPoTsyo (Patient Information Center), and Women Media Center (WMC)

What’s Verboice?
Verboice projects can start small and scale up, making it possible to improve lives even in communities previously closed off by literacy and technological barriers. Verboice is an ideal solution for reaching out to communities whatever their level of literacy or technological sophistication.

Objectives:
To get a better understanding of users’ implementation of the Verboice-powered project
To document best practices to replicate, what to improve, and issues to tackle
