Inaugural Text Messaging Competition Selects Non-Profit Winners From Kenya, Uganda, Mexico and Azerbaijan
Inaugural Text Messaging Competition Selects Non-Profit Winners From Kenya, Uganda, Mexico and Azerbaijan: "The inaugural nGOmobile competition ran for three months from October 2007, and was aimed exclusively at grassroots non-profit Non Governmental Organisations (NGOs) working for positive social and environmental change. 'Behind the scenes, these often unsung heroes of the NGO community battle against the daily realities of life in developing countries, where it can take all day to fulfil the simplest task' said Ken Banks, Founder of kiwanja.net. 'These people don't lack passion and commitment, they lack tools and resources' said Banks."
