Ulwazi on your cellphone

A mobile digital revolution is sweeping Africa and the Ulwazi Programme has recognised this. If the knowledge and stories we collect are to be relevant to the communities we serve, then this information needs to be accessible through mobile devices.

Not everyone has a computer with access to the internet but most people have access to a cellphone, which now come standard with a browser.  With this in mind, we have developed Wap-enabled, mobile-friendly versions of our website, blog and wiki that are accessible and usable from a cellphone.

So, how does this all work?  Well, it couldn’t be easier.  Simply navigate to www.ulwaziprogramme.org in your cellphone’s browser and we’ll take it from there.  Our server automatically detects that you are accessing the website from a mobile device and delivers you the scaled down version of the website, optimised for viewing on a smaller screen.
