I noticed the great photos of your work you've posted here, and thought I'd let you know the we are currently running a FrontlineSMS photo competition, which you may like to enter: Click for details.
I also notice your conversation with Amy below about FrontlineSMS:Radio. You can learn more about this project by visiting the FrontlineSMS:Radio website: http://radio.frontlinesms.com/and you can also join in with related discussions in the Media group here on the Forum.
It looks like you are doing some really exciting work with FrontlineSMS. It would be great to learn more about your work, and if possible feature your project on the FrontlineSMS blog. Please do let me know if this would be of interest.
The local radio are used to complement the information we send every week with sms. We are working with 6 radios: Radio Denguélé (Denguélé), Radio Djeli FM (Worodougou), Radio Sinaï (Savanes), Radio Media + CI (Vallée du Bandama), La voix de la savane (Zanzan-Bouna), Radio Zanzan (Zanzan-Bondoukou). We are working with 8000 producers, but we only have 2000 cellphone numbers. At the village scale if just one person has a cellphone the information is transmitted oraly to the other villagers. Please see the sms already sent: http://www.rongead.org/SMS-PROJET-NTIC.html.
We are not incitating people to text into the radio programmes, but I am not sure to understand very well this activity. Is it people (in our case the cashew producers) that can send sms to the radio, and the message is read by the radio-speaker? Is it something else...
Thank you for your interest, frontlinesms help us a lot in our project ! We are recently developping this system in Burkina, and will probably extend this activity to other countries and other markets. J
Welcome Julien! I am very interested to hear about your project it sounds fascinating!

How many do you work with and do you encourage people to text into the radio programmes? A \~/
