    We'll Call You Back: WFP's 2 Way Communications in DRC

    In Goma, WFP sends out automated SMS surveys to student key informants to collect food prices in the local markets. The information is then recorded into an Interactive Voice Response system that beneficiaries can call to listen to information on food prices, WFP distribution dates, and phone survey dates free of charge. For more information on the project, please visit the VAM blog.
