Active Citizenship

Our approach is defined by our belief that citizens own governments and therefore they should have the agency and confidence to speak up and use their voice to direct public projects. 

We give the analogy of a shop. If you establish a shop and you employ me to keep the shop, you would frequently track inventory and look at the books in detail. So too must citizens look at public records.

In turn, governments at all levels must be open and allow citizens to review its records. 

Some of our projects

Subnational Citizen Engagement

We build citizen capacity to use data for better engagement with government and other stakeholders

Open Extractives

We recognise artisanal small scale mining potential and the need to create a conducive ecosystem to foster its development.

Community Monitoring

We created Nuru as a tool to crowdsource observations about how citizens are coping in the exceptionally difficult circumstances brought on by the virus

The Ability Programme

We aim to gather data around the Nairobi Central Business District and clearly mark out how accessible these every day environments really are
