Grants to this Grantee
for program on data privacy and protection in Africa  
The Africa Digital Rights Hub (ADRH) is a nonprofit think tank in Ghana that advances and promotes research and advocacy on digital rights issues across the African continent. The grant to the Africa Digital Rights’ Hub will support a research program on privacy and data protection with the aim of promoting creation and use of data protection and privacy protocols in Africa. This is important to the foundation’s goals under Evidence-Informed Policymaking because the current absence or weakness of policy and regulatory frameworks in Africa to govern use of data to balance innovation, data-driven decision making, and personal privacy is a threat to our ultimate goal — that governments use data to improve policies, programs, and outcomes for people.
