I’ve been sent over here on behalf of a movement called ‘The Social Revolution Project’.
We’re in need of an alternative to the forum on our website and Discourse does seem to be the answer, unfortunately we do not have funds at this time to be able to purchase. So to put it bluntly; can Discourse offer a free licence to a non-profit organisation?
A little more:
“The Social Revolution Project is an organisation which aims to connect local people and get them to discuss issues in their area. By using democratic elements within the technology we have, we are able to organise / rank the desires of citizens, then create community collaboration events to tackle the identified problem(s) using peaceful people power.”
At the moment, we are predominately using “Facebook Groups” and their polls to facilitate this movement. We are having great success with this idea (our core team is currently planning a croundfund campaign to help a community in Marondera, Zimbabwe create a neighbourhood poultry farm,after the region raised the issue of self-sufficiency - just one example of the positive changes we are able to achieve with this model.)
Discourse could help us by providing an additional place for our “SRP Groups” to discuss problems whilst also providing an online “backup” for the work we are doing through other social media.
