Africa's Voices

Africa’s digital age presents new opportunities for gathering and analysing citizen voices to benefit the empowerment and development of poor and vulnerable populations. By translating research on innovative context-relevant social and data science methods into a successful spin-out UK charity, the interdisciplinary Africa’s Voices research programme brings together researchers in the humanities, social sciences and computer science to support the delivery of impactful solutions for its partners in countries ranging from Kenya and Uganda to Somalia and South Africa. To date, these partners include UNICEF, Oxfam, Troicaire, Well Told Story, World University Service Canada and MasterCard Foundation. Practical and applied innovations are turning citizen engagement (to date, 200k+ citizen opinions) into robust evidence that supports strong citizen-government relations and the delivery of more thoughtful, timely and accountable services. Strong demand for AVF’s solutions leaves it poised for greater impact in achieving global development commitments to inclusive citizen engagement and to leaving no one behind.
