Petition Update

Interesting response from MTN

Sinenjongo 2013 class

Nov 13, 2013 — It seems we are not the only ones who have noticed that an inspiring 6,500 of you (THANK YOU!) have signed our petition on Change.org asking mobile carriers to provide free access to Wikipedia.

Business Tech just reported that MTN is taking notice too: "According to Kusile Mtunzi-Hairwadzi: GM of the MTN SA Foundation, MTN is, in fact, currently working on a programme to zero rate access to Wikipedia for its customers."

It's really exciting news, and a great chance to remind the other companies just how big a difference this could make for students all over South Africa. Please take just a second to tweet at the mobile companies and share the petition on Facebook.

With your help we can make this happen.
