I am the Director of Empilweni, a Mental Health organisation providing psychosocial and emotional support to children ages 4 - 18. For individual & group therapy sessions and parental skills workshops we are forced to make use of telephone calling them to remind them of their appointments and our telephone bill is always high as a result of calling cell phones.
Tell us about you. (Please also add an image to your profile)
I am a Social Worker by profession and I have worked for different organisations since 1993, working with the marginalised; people with disability, children and poor families especially women headed families.
Passion, respect for human dignity are the driving forces that keep me going and and wanting to do more in this sector. I am a team player and pride myself with emotional intelligence.
My name is Amy and I am working to customise FrontlineSMS for radio stations - you can check out more at http://radio.frontlinesms.com. I hear you are interested in using radio in your work - can you explain your ideas on this? Are you working in radio already? What messages are you asking people to send you? The software is currently in trial but I'm happy to share it with you if you are interested.
