Dear APC Africa members and Team
(Please see http://www.ngomobile.org/ for more information.)
I recently came across this website and announcement and thought it
might be of interest to those organisations interested in using mobile
phones in their work.
"nGOmobile is a text message-based competition aimed exclusively and
unashamedly at grassroots non-profit organisations working for
positive social and environmental change throughout the developing
world ... The competition wants to encourage NGOs to think more about
how mobile technology could be applied in their work ... NGOs from
developing countries are invited to submit a short proposal outlining
how text messaging could make their job easier ... What we are looking
for is impact - a clear indication that winning an amazing prize, and
gaining access to mobile technology, would revolutionise your work and
turn mission impossible into mission accomplished."
The prize includes the following:
A brand new HP Pavilion laptop computer - To help you run your
messaging campaign from anywhere you choose
A GSM modem - Send messages through the mobile network without the
need for the Internet
Office software - Word processing, spreadsheets, email - everything to
help you run your project more efficiently
A top-of-the-range Nokia mobile phone (or two) - A couple of cool
Nokia phones to help you take photos and videos (and talk!)
FrontlineSMS - Software to run your text-messaging campaign.
A little cash - One thousand dollars to help get your new project off
to the best possible start!
There will be FOUR winners and the deadline for proposals is 14th December.
