NYSC CDS groups are charged with dedication and efficient service to the nation in the different states of deployment. To accomplish this, effective communication within the group and with the community they are rendering service to is very important. Already, we’ve seen the different ways bulk SMS can help accomplish this. See here.
Another aspect that can’t be neglected in any association of youths, NYSC CDS groups inclusive, is social gatherings. In NYSC CDS groups, these may be in form of small get-togethers, send off parties for outgoing Corp members or welcome parties for new Corp members.
To organize such parties or gatherings, most times monetary contributions are made to make the day a bomb. Dues are shared among the Corp members, to use for gifts (for outgoing Corp members), get sufficient foods and drinks and get a suitable place for the occasion. Reminders are needed to get everyone to pay their due. See here how bulk SMS can be used for dues/fees payment reminders.
Additionally, timely text messages need to be sent to remind all Corp members in the group of the date and time of the social gathering. If there is a chosen dress code or color code, this can also be communicated through bulk SMS. Its cheap and delivery is instant. What more? Everyone gets it at the same time.
