This year we're planning to
Set up Open Collective page
Secure funding for upfront costs for 100 sample SD cards – (Crowdfunding? Grant funding? – Get in touch if you have ideas) The idea is to develop a social enterprise model, so the donation-based work should kickstart ongoing work.

Set up online shop with order page for cards that accepts Mobile Payment options (Mpay) Ship worldwide.
Package cards in retail packaging and post 3 $free sample cards to 25 phone shops in targetted African towns, with an online link for them to re-order.
Post 250 demo cards to potential supporters, partners, influencers.
We need to create .Zim files, the format that Kiwix uses for a range of content. Please get in touch if you can help with this.
Establishing partnerships with potential distributors and others
Social media help
Someone is needed to help plan a social strategy, identify influencers, manage a Facebook page
If your University, Non-Profit, or company can sponsor the project then we'll list you on the main introductory page of the content library. Sponsorship will enable us to devote more time to the project.
We're keen to hear from grant funders who are interested in this work.
Any money donated by individuals through the Open Collective page will be used to buy, install & ship hardware to Africa or refugee camps. You can track how resources are used on the Open Collective page.
