Initiative Description

Follow the Money is an anti-corruption civic tech Website which uses campaigns driven by hashtags on social media to track community projects. Follow the Money has over 2,000+ members and this year expanded into Kenya and The Gambia. In 2018 it won the One Africa award which came with $100,000 to support their work. Follow the Money activists collect, publish, and visualize data, then connect findings to national and global social media networks in order to bring government attention to crises on the ground that require resources or immediate action.The team has tackled issues like lead poisoning, flood relief, and most recently, education.
