Below is a demo on video of our Angel service in 2009. We have ventured far on this journey celebrating more than 300,000 people on Angel and serving more than 26 million conversations through the counseling service since officially launching early 2008. You can find a published paper on the service in the South African Journal of Family Practice.
Last week Mxit Reach launched the mySafety Application on Mxit providing its users access to counseling, emergency and information services address violence against women and children in South Africa. In the first 24 hours of the app going live more than 30,000 users downloaded the application and interacting with its services.
This is another great way of showing how Mxit can be used as a tool for social change.
