Changing the way information flows

Ushahidi, which translates to “testimony” in Swahili, was developed to map reports of violence in Kenya after the post-election violence in 2008. Since then, thousands have used our crowdsourcing tools to raise their voice. We’re a technology leader in Africa, headquartered in Nairobi, with a global team.

The Ushahidi Ecosystem

We design new products and initiatives with a global perspective. Our aim is to serve people with limited access in hard-to-reach places. In addition to our other products, we are proud to be a key catalyst of an innovation ecosystem that are leaders in East Africa and around the world. We strive to create technology that solves global problems.


We partner with leading foundations and organizations to increase access to information, empower citizens, and protect marginalized communities.
