We for Ourselves-Solving Problems

with 0 Comment
Hello Everyone,

Sparrow SMS has been providing various technological solutions via Short Messaging Service (SMS) in Nepal.

You can connect to us at facebook.com/sparrowsms on Facebook and twitter.com/sparrowsms on twitter.

Power of Text

The Power of Text is an initiative to support social causes via SMS. This service aims to help a person, a group or community, or a society raise funds to solve a crisis, through SMS Fundraiser.

Through the initiative, funds have been raised via SMS for medical treatment of Lt Kumar Kancha, a popular Nepali singer, who was bedridden with paralysis at the S L Raheja Hospital in Mahin. http://poweroftext.org/

This project, however, is not just a simple fundraiser. We partner with other organizations because we realize that it is not easy to raise huge amounts just via SMS. With the success of the pilot initiative and the realization that it can be the next big innovation in the field of development, we are taking it to the next level. We have entered and have been shortlisted in “The Dell Social Innovation Challenge”. http://www.dellchallenge.org/projects/solving-problems-ourselves

The Dell Social Innovation Challenge identifies and supports promising young social innovators who dedicate themselves to solving the world's most pressing problems with their transformative ideas.
