VOTO is a fast-growing social enterprise whose services enable organizations to engage traditionally difficult-to-reach populations through their mobile phones in meaningful, real-time, two-way conversations, instantly reaching across distance, language, and literacy barriers. We work with our partners to ensure that feedback loops are closed and that the voices of the underheard are amplified. In the last four years, we have worked with more than 500 organizations in 40 countries to reach 5 million people.
We specialize in Interactive Voice Response (IVR), SMS, and unstructured supplementary service data (USSD). Our international connections allow us to call every phone on the planet and our growing network of local infrastructure allows us to simultaneously push and receive content at a high volume, achieving national scale quickly and at less than 5% of the cost of traditional user engagement. HNI & VOTO currently have programs and staff in the following countries:
