Learners Lobby for Free Wikipedia

Learners are lobby local mobile operators to make Wikipedia free to facilitate easier access to information

South African learners are lobbying local mobile operators - Vodacom, MTN and Cell C - to make Wikipedia free to facilitate easier access to information.

In Uganda and Kenya, mobile operators allow free access to the online encyclopaedia Wikipedia and learners from Sinenjongo High School in Joe Slovo Park outside Cape Town are lobbying to make the service available in South Africa.

In a letter, the learners say their school does not have a library at all and they have to walk a long distance to the local library, where they also have to queue to share one or two computers which are connected to the Internet.
