Social change community
Stephen Wolak, the brain behind Vodafone’s Betavine community, has launched a new social change community “where we look at how mobile technology and mobile services can bring about positive social change, particularly in developing countries.”

The concept, he says, “is to bring together problem owners, contributors who can help with a mobile solution and activators who can deploy the solution on the ground.”

The community site, which currently mainly pulls in content from MobileActive, compliments the soon to be launched Betavine Social Exchange, a project funded as part of the Vodafone Group Social Investment Fund, which seeks to enable access to communications in emerging markets, and a mobile for social change forum.
