Free Data for Protesters

During the #FeesMustFall protests Ruark Ferreira from Ekaya initiated a donor based system whereby students at the riot were given free data on MTN, Vodacom Telkom or Cell C. "The students on the ground need to document this movement to the world” said Ferreira. 

Ruark’s initiative ensured that the data costs would not limit the ability of the students to document what was going on at the protests. 

Donors of airtime were requested to complete a form on Google which would then safely and conveniently let them add up to 100MB of data per student request. 

More than 2000 mobile data donors have been achieved since the service launched on 22 October 2015.
