About Viamo

Mobile technology is revolutionizing how organizations engage with their end-users. More than 96% of the world’s population has access to a mobile phone, meaning it is now possible to reach nearly every single person on the planet. Yet 3 billion people living in emerging markets still lack access to relevant, timely, and engaging information in their local languages, and their voices remain underheard in public debates, surveys, and policymaking. The organizations that serve them often lack the technology and capacity to reach them, and many are unaware of the power of mobile technology to meet their organizational goals.

Viamo connects individuals and organizations using digital technology to make better decisions. With more than 30 million people reached in 2020 alone, we are well on our way to meeting our goal of reaching 50M people annually by 2023.

With an office located in Abuja, Nigeria, Viamo is firmly committed to partnering with innovators and projects that have the capacity to set forth change on both the community and global level. Through the utilisation of ICT, we intend to assist development organizations, private sector companies, and the Government in reaching and engaging with beneficiaries, stakeholders, and project implementers.
