New mobile database and image gallery go live at www.kiwanja.net
<http://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.
