How NYSC CDS Groups can Make use of Bulk SMS
All Community Development Service (CDS) groups organized under the National Youth Service Corps, are charged with a responsibility to render a service to the community they find themselves. This services rendered, for most of these groups, involves educating and enlightening of the public or a targeted group of some important information for their general safety and well being.
In light of this, many CDS groups go for public sensitization and awareness on a regular basis. This sensitization is arranged in order to deliver important and beneficial lectures to the general public or their target group based on the core values that the CDS group stands for.
In most cases, the executives of the CDS group search out the place for the sensitization, gets the approval of the authorities in charge, agree on a date and time with them, then come back and update the group members with the arrangement made. Then, the team charged with delivering lectures meet together and prepare what is to be delivered on the agree date. Other group members are also intimated of this, so they prepare for the sensitization also.
In order to get everybody to turn up though on the day of sensitization, another thing is very important-Reminders. More often than not, because the day of public sensitization might not fall on the day for normal CDS meetings, many persons might forget. It is important therefore to send a reminder to everyone a day before the outing, to get all informed and get as many as possible to attend.
You can accomplish this with bulk SMS. Having gotten the phone numbers of all the members of the group, and a registered bulk SMS account, simply login and compose a reminder SMS and send to everyone. Everybody gets it at the same time, turn up on the sensitization day and make the outing a success.
