WanaData is a Pan-African network of female journalists, data scientists and techies working on changing the digital media landscape by producing and promoting data-driven news while applying digital technologies in their storytelling. It is an initiative of the pan-African federation Code for Africa which is an impact accelerator, and a collaborative pan-African federation of civic data and civic technology organizations.
We use technology and data to build digital democracies, and to empower citizens with actionable information. We have a strong journalism focus, believing that media is a powerful information and mobilization agent. Our projects range from building big technology platforms and citizen-focused tools, to producing and funding tech and data driven investigations.
