Grants to this Grantee
for a project to improve citizen access to government information and services using mobile phones  
The Social Impact Lab (SIMLab) makes it easier for citizens to access government information and services by using mobile devices, particularly in lower-income countries. As the team behind FrontlineSMS, the free mobile phone software, SIMLab helps lower barriers to citizen engagement by building and disseminating its open source software and by providing support to transparency and accountability groups. SIMLab also works with governments that are actively seeking more robust tools for soliciting citizen participation and feedback. This grant would enable SIMLab to tailor their software more to government and civil society needs and to measure and document the impact of using mobile technologies in promoting more productive citizen-government engagement.
