BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF INITIATIVE

Data Zetu (“Our Data” in Swahili) aims to empower communities to make better, more evidence-based decisions to improve their lives.

The program works with communities across Tanzania to discover issues that matter most to them. Then we work with stakeholders to arm them with skills and tools to make sense of data related to those challenges. As a result, we’re helping to foster the use of open data that is relevant, hyperlocal, and actionable.

The African Civic Tech Atlas is a work in progress (and a labour of love) for us but we may miss some initiative that needs updating. If your initiative needs to be updated on the database, kindly follow the instructions on the “Update Your Initiative” tab.
