Membership in the Kamusi Project

Why should you become a member of the Kamusi Project?

There are three main reasons for you to become a member of the Kamusi Project:
1) By knowing that we can count on your modest annual membership dues ($30, or about the equivalent in most major currencies), we can plan a budget for the project and meet our expenses (servers, programmers, equipment, language expertise, etc) as they arise.
2) To maintain our charitable status, the organization must demonstrate that we have "a broad base of public support." Having a million users a year of our free services does not meet the legal description, but having a few thousand members certainly does. We've set the annual dues quite low so that as many users as possible will be able to join.
3) The longer you stay a member, the more chances you have to win fabulous merchandise. Every time 100 new members join, we will select one new member and one continuing member at random to receive the item of their choice from the Member Awards section of the Kamusi Project Duka (available items are subject to change).

Benefits of membership

All members are automatically enrolled in our 1002 Members Award program. Every time we receive 100 new dues-paying members, one new member and one continuing member will be selected at random to receive the item of their choice from the Member Awards section of the Kamusi Project Duka (available items are subject to change). This program is unlimited; if you join today and stay a member in good standing, and 10,000 people join after you, you will be in the running for awards 101 times.

An additional practical benefit is that members can elect one of your own to serve on the Board of Kamusi Project International. In this way, the membership will have a continuous voice in the management and future direction of the project.

We intend to roll out additional benefits for members, including access to special site features. Watch this space!
