amandla .mobi is working not only to be a people driven movement, but people funded as well. To ensure their independence, and accountability to their members, They are working hard to ensure each year they are increasingly funded by their members, not big donors. Their plan is to be majority funded by every day people in Mzansi by 2020. Whether it’s a R5 airtime donation, or a R1000 monthly donation. The amandla .mobi community holds leaders in corporations, the media, government and public institutions to account, therefore they do not accept funding from companies, any of their government departments, political parties or other institutions, so that they are free and independent to challenge power.
