Alexander Ngalande comes to K Street


On March 19th, 2009, Alex Ngalande will be speaking at IREX, the International Research and Exchanges Board, in Washington, D.C., alongside Ken Banks – founder of Alex is the home-based care nurse at St. Gabriel’s Hospital, and runs Mobiles in Malawi. It will be his first time in the US.


Before the SMS program, Alex had never used a computer. After a few hours playing with FrontlineSMS and the donated laptop, the entire program was handed over to him. A large reason – if not the reason – the project has been successful is Alex’s ownership. I missed his presentation at MobileActive08, but I hope to be by his side, this time.

Alex is kind, committed, and professional – I couldn’t be happier he’s been given this opportunity. My family is equally happy, as we’ll be hosting Alex for a portion of his stay.

It goes without saying that I’m TOTALLY thrilled to be able to meet Alex, and am hugely grateful to IREX for extending their arm of friendship across the Atlantic and making it possible for him to come.

I hope you’re also planning on being there, Josh? ;o)

Any chance you all might be able to come up to Baltimore the next day to talk to folks @ Jhpiego? I know that schedules are probably still a bit “up in the air,” but it would be great if it could happen. Ken is already scheduled to stop by & I’m very much looking forward to it :)

Hey James -

It’s definitely possible! I will let you know as soon as my schedule is solidified. Many thanks for the offer.

All the best – Josh.

Sick and tired of obtaining low amounts of useless visitors to your website? Well i wish to tell you about a fresh underground tactic that makes myself $900 per day on 100% AUTOPILOT. I could truthfully be here all day and going into detail but why dont you simply check their site out? There is really a excellent video that explains everything. So if your serious about producing simple money this is the site for you. Auto Traffic Avalanche
