Mobile Movement a group co-founded by Jess Fraser, who I have profiled before, has been nominated for a Webby Award in the Youth Category! Webbies are the equivalent of Oscars for on line campaigns. And they are in good company: MTV, National Geographic, Electric Company and Interfuel were also honoured with a nomination.
Mobile Movement is a creative variation on micro-finance. Using mobile phone technology donors/investors are able to communicate directly with young entrepreneurs in Nairobi. It makes giving come alive, literally, and you will be pleasantly surprised at how thoughtful they have been in allowing for a meaningful relationship to develop between donors and participants.
The Webby Winners will be announced in June. This is a PEOPLE'S CHOICE AWARD so taking a few minutes to vote would help Mobile Movement against the big hitters mentioned above.
