Access & Accountability
Access and accountability is a relatively new area for MMA. Part of our core objectives as an organisation is to promote the active participation of citizens in our democracy. In South Africa, citizens are faced with extraordinary high data costs, particularly on mobile, as well as limited access to the internet. Through various projects, we are attempting to challenge these barriers and provide solutions that are affordable, accessible and ultimately, practical ways to enable citizens to hold power to account.
Shika Moto holds at its heart the principle of freedom. The freedom to learn, to grow and to change. Access to the internet is one of the most important tools for building a pathway to these freedoms. Shika Moto delivers internet services on a local network to people who either don’t have great internet access or who haven’t had access before.
These guides will help you both address concerns, and show your appreciation for the media, through the right channels.
