Uchaguzi is You! is our mantra. We are always on and always in edit mode. We are managed in a team driven engine that is decidedly non-linear. Everyone works with integrity and takes our Code of Collaboration to heart.

Announcing funding from the Ford Foundation

We’re excited to announce major funding for Ushahidi coming from the Ford Foundation. Ford Foundation is making a $500,000 grant to Ushahidi over 2 years. The funding enables us to increase our community engagement capacity, scale the Crowdmap platform and provides operational support in 2011 and 2012.

Coffee, chatting, demos and pints!

We’ve been connecting with old and new friends during the past week or so. Meetups were held in Montreal (CA) (Sept.12th), Lusaka (ZA) (Sept. 13th), Ottawa (CA) (Sept. 15th), London (UK ) (Sept. 16th), and Mombasa (KE) (Sept 17th). Connecting with the Ushahidi community helps us focus on the mission to support their efforts.
