Joshua Haynes

Country: Niger

For Project ABC (Alphabetisation Basee par Cellulaire), Joshua Haynes created a software system that empowers rural farmers to make better economic decisions through information and literacy by using mobile phones to send SMS messages to check market prices of specific crops at different markets before traveling all the way to the market, saving transportation costs and providing the farmers with better prices for their crops.

He has since started his own Non-Profit, MASAWA, along with Julie Zollmann and three other former Blakeley Fellows.
