amandla.mobi is an independent, community advocacy organisation that seeks to build a more just and people-powered Mzansi.
To do this we're working to turn every cell phone into a democracy building tool so that no matter where you live; what language you speak or what issue you care about, you can take action with others. We do this through providing inclusive access to information and tools on cell phones, and where we can, in multiple languages.
amandla.mobi members from across the country come together at critical moments to take targeted, co-ordinated and strategic action to make real change. Our job is to connect you up with others, so that your voice has more impact and power to hold political and corporate interests to account.
