BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF INITIATIVE

sourceAFRICA is a web platform that can be used as an investigative tool, it was developed and is maintained by ANCIR. On SourceAFRICA people have access to 115 126 documents (as of October) from 47 organisations. The platfrom has about 137 contributors including the Mail & Guardian, Oxpeckers, Daily Trust and Pesa Check. People have access to documents ranging from cancellation of family planning in Tanzania, the South African Mining Charter and Kenya Data Protection Bill 2018 and many more.

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.
