Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. etribes has created an unique online community and WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) site for conservation and development charity Fauna & Flora International (FFI). The new service combines an interactive website with cutting-edge WAP technology to offer a resource that is accessible both online and via mobile phone.www.wildlive.org was conceived by FFI following a creative workshop run by etribes back in 2002. The aim was to create a website that would be both an information resource and a highly stimulating mechanism for sharing news and ideas. By channelling some of this content into a WAP site, FFI hopes to tap into new audiences, especially young people, via their mobile phones.The wildlive! website provides an online repository of up-to-date news, information and resources, as well as interactive features such as a discussion forum, bulletin board and online poll. Certain tools are designed to bring members closer to the cause – such as the Field Diary, which is written daily by FFI overseas staff as they, for example, track tiger poachers in Sumatra. The Photo Gallery displays many of FFI’s amazing photographs and the Members Gallery allows users to post their own photographs to the site. The site also comes with a complete e-commerce package that enables members to buy photographs and other FFI products, pay their annual subscription to FFI or make a donation online.The wildlive! WAP site shares the same database as the website and displays much of the same news and information, edited or compressed into a smaller format for mobile phones. The most exciting mobile features are the animal sounds, wildlife wallpapers and wildlife games – which can be pre-viewed, bought and downloaded in seconds. The WAP site is currently accessible via Vodafone live! and is top of their What’s New? list.Luke Brynley-Jones, Managing Director of etribes, said of the project: “This has been one of the most innovative and challenging projects we’ve taken on. Creating a combined online community and WAP site in this way is, as far as we know, a first for the UK voluntary sector. Ensuring that information passes smoothly between the web and WAP interfaces and that it arrives in the right format is a real test, but we’re delighted with the result and are working with FFI to ensure the project is a success. We also hope to work with other organisations to make their web content available via mobile handsets. As an innovative way of communicating with supporters and enabling them to connect with each other, we feel this project has set new standards for the voluntary sector – which can only be a good thing.”Ken Banks, Project Technical Advisor from FFI, said: “Wildlive! has been an incredibly exciting project to manage. By combining Internet and mobile technologies, conservation is now available to a whole new audience in an entirely new way. For FFI, Wildlive! represents a huge leap forward and a perfect opportunity to embrace the very latest in communication technology. Not only are mobile users able to keep in constant touch with the conservation world, but their mobile devices are a perfect platform for FFI’s vast range of stunning photographs.”He added: “Not ones to rest on our laurels, we plan to extend the service throughout 2004, looking specifically at a global rollout and region-specific content. This will bring challenges in itself, but something we are very much looking forward to.”Notes to Editors on etribes Limitedetribes™ is an award-winning Internet solutions provider.

Two more arrests in Egypt

first_img RSF_en Al-Shaab newspaper editor Amer Abdel Moneim was arrested at his home in the Cairo district of Gizeh on the night of 18 December and was placed in pre-trial detention for an initial period of 15 days that is renewable. After being questioned without a lawyer being present, he was charged with “spreading fake news” and “participating in terrorist activities.” Relatives say he is in very poor health, suffering from diabetes and having recently undergone an operation to his eyes. Moneim had published several articles in recent weeks criticizing President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi’s authoritarian policies and condemning the many arrests of journalists and human rights defenders.The other recent arrest is that of the blogger Shady Abu Zaid. A month after his release on 18 October, he was re-arrested as a result of an appeal court’s decision to sentence him to six months in prison, upholding his 2016 conviction by a Qasr Al-Nil criminal court on a charge of “defaming the interior ministry” in a satirical video in which he pranked police officers. Zaid spent more than two years in provisional detention after he was arrested for the first time in May 2018, when the authorities said they were investigating him on suspicion of “spreading fake news” and “membership of a terrorist group.”“It is distressing to see the Egyptian authorities continue to flout the right to be informed by arbitrarily arresting and detaining yet more news providers and bloggers,” said Sabrina Bennoui, the head of RSF’s Middle East desk. “We call for the immediate release of the 31 journalists detained in Egypt.”The latest arrests came just as the European Parliament adopted Resolution 2912 condemning “in the strongest possible terms the continuing and intensifying crackdown on fundamental rights and on human rights defenders, lawyers, protesters, journalists, bloggers, trade unionists [and others].”The resolution has annoyed Egypt’s political class, which regards it as meddling in Egypt’s internal affairs.Egypt is ranked 166th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index .
