for a project in East Africa to amplify citizen voice in public service delivery decision making
Incubated at Cambridge University, Africa’s Voices is establishing itself in East Africa to apply experience with citizen engagement and data analysis to help service delivery organizations better understand and respond to the needs of their clients. Partnering with media companies and short message service (SMS) platform providers, Africa’s Voices engages marginalized and hard-to-reach communities to gather, analyze, and channel citizen feedback on the public services that they are—or are not—receiving. As a learning organization, Africa’s Voices also investigates the conditions under which increased citizen voice informs service delivery decisions.
