Welcome to nGOmobile :: Taking mobile technology to the grassroots

The massive potential of mobile technology, particularly at grass-roots level, has already been demonstrated. Examples from around the
world include…

… patients receiving text message (SMS) reminders to take their medicine, so they no longer waste time and money travelling to their nearest clinic. Farmers finding out the current market price before deciding whether to take their produce to market that day. National parks communicating details about dangerous animals, providing an early warning system to mitigate against human-wildlife conflict. Unemployed youths in Nairobi’s shanty towns receiving texts alerting them to job opportunities in the city

The breadth of SMS use is staggering, but we have the feeling that we’re still only just scratching the surface
