Problem: What problem is this project trying to address?

Disputes can be very tricky to solve if decision and verdicts are not popular it can trigger a full scale war that will destroy a whole community or at large a whole race. When land disputes or an occasion of any form of dispute, a phone in program on any media can be very potent at resolving red issues . Elderly any gender are used in the good old days in Africa to resolve knotted issues. That why the proverb in Yoruba says 'Agba kii wa loja kori omo titun wo'. Elderly men and women from opposing sides participates in a live program where every one involved in the issue can phone in with their GSM as most of the land disputes became escalated and clogged when their is lack of system of spreading news faster.

Impact
Actions

Vetoing laws from few representatives at any world body has proved to be myopic, personal than the real issue on ground on the red sites.It has plunged many regions into unnecessary war of annihilation.
We are currently advocating GSM will afford everyone concerned a voice in SMS into designated numbers. This will facilitate a priceless database to work on and the progress will be on live to assure the sender of a sure action.
A process that is public participatory often bring out an acceptable 'norm' while a decision by few people in high places brings out a 'law' forced on the citizens.

I operate a CUSTOMIZE SMS SERVICE in my country.The effect I had noticed are far fetching as receivers tend to take this messages as an important part of their daily routine.
Theirs one thing that can aid peace its called unbiased communication.
Communication gap most in the third world is driven by rumors, eavesdropping and false stories reported as facts even on popular TV stations most especially the one managed by governments.
One of this 'facts' plunged Nigeria into a devastating civil war in the 70's the effect is still rocking every faucet of life in the country.
