SaNGOnet is requesting that the mobile operators (Vodacom, MTN, Cell C and Telkom) and their affiliates – including WASPS and service providers in South Africa – combine to enable short code donations where 100% of the donation is received by the Non-Profit. In order to achieve this we propose: Operators agree to forward 100% of donations given via these shortcodes to the Non-Profits (via the non-profit WASP) A set of shortcodes be allocated by operators for the exclusive use of non-profits. SANGONeT and other interested NGOs establish a non-profit WASP (similar to Mobile Giving Foundation) in the US) to vet and process applications by non-profits, and to ensure that only bona-fide organisations benefit. This organization could also be responsible for dispersal of funds. The Non-Profit WASP and all users of its short codes would agree to abide by WASPA rules concerning marketing, maximum levels of donations, privacy and other issues. The Campaign We need to build substantial support for this proposal in order to convince mobile operators of the need to change how sms donations are treated.
