STATUS: In Development
Livewire is a mobile app that is being developed by Grassroot. Livewire aims to connect marginalised communities to the mainstream media in South Africa. LiveWire will have two main functions – a “press alert” generator which allows community leaders to send news alerts to journalists and a “find contact” which allows journalists to find contacts in underreported communities.
