Ken Banks of kiwanja.net has launched a new online database of
projects around the world that are using mobile technologies for
social and environmental initiatives.
It seems like a very worthwhile effort worth letting others know
about. If you think so too, please help spread the word about it
-- and contribute listings to it:
kiwanja.net has also created a online gallery of royalty-free
images related to mobile technologies. It's free for anybody to
use, but especially intended for NGOs and non-profits who want
images to use in "brochures, general literature, websites or
project reports and proposals".

Subject: Mobile Database and Gallery launched
New mobile database and image gallery go live at www.kiwanja.net
On 1st January, kiwanja.net launched two new website services - an online
mobile database and a gallery of images. The Mobile Database
<http://www.kiwanja.net/database/kiwanja_search.php> is a resource designed
to provide information on mobile usage around the world. With a particular
emphasis on social and environmental initiatives, articles and reports, it
aims to assist academics, professionals and practitioners interested in ways
mobile telephony is being used to enhance environmental, social,
humanitarian, political and economic causes. The database launches with
details of several dozen projects, articles and reports, and will be
continually updated with past, present and future initiatives as they come
online. Users are encouraged to help by submitting details of their own
projects, and volunteers are encouraged to assist with general updating.
At the same time, a gallery of mobile-related images has also been launched
on the site. Until now, high quality royalty-free images have been hard to
find on the web. The Mobile Gallery
<http://www.kiwanja.net/mobilegallery.htm> aims to meet this need by
providing NGOs and non-profits with royalty-free photographs for use in
brochures, general literature, websites or project reports and proposals.
The gallery launches with approximately forty initial images. Additional
categories and countries will be added over the coming weeks.
