The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation have today announced a major grant in support of kiwanja's ongoing activities. The grant, worth a total of $400,000 over two years, will see the ongoing support and development of FrontlineSMS, the creation of an MMS (multimedia messaging) version of the platform, FrontlineSMS outreach, the creation of a non-profit online text messaging aggregator, and the scaling of the nGOmobile competition

The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation makes grants to address the most serious social and environmental problems facing society, where risk capital, responsibly invested, may make a difference over time. The Foundation places a high value on sustaining and improving institutions that make positive contributions to society

[MobileActive] FrontlineSMS Update

Via the MobileActive mailing list, I received this interesting FrontlineSMS Update from Ken Banks. Well worth exploring for those grassroots organizations seeking to use mobile phones more effectively in their work. I am pleased to see there is now a Ning forum for the project for improved networking amongst people seeking to use the tool. I would love to hear from any Kabissa members using FrontlineSMS so we can share the benefits with the Kabissa community.
