in the power of data to revolutionize how governments deliver services to their
citizens. We aim to digitally transform government services across Africa
through an information-centric approach and craft better life experiences by
harnessing improved data.
There are major gaps within government and
stakeholders in collecting data, analyzing this data and using this data within
planning, budgeting and programming. By improving data processes, we can
improve how services are delivered, how budgets are allocated, how citizens
interact with governments and how organizations advocate for social change.
