    Today is a day of gratitude! Peace has prevailed in Kenya and the Uchaguzi volunteers have filled the iHub and virtual Ushahidi community with positivity and productivity for the past two days.  Thank you, all!

    The Uchaguzi project brought more than 70 volunteers to the iHub August 3rd and 4th (with at least 12 others joining remotely).  Volunteers helped map and process over 1400 messages as well as assisted our team of Ushahidi developers fix bugs that popped up during the Uchaguzi deployment.  The volunteers met the challenge with incredible enthusiasm, focus, patience, and a spirit of fun!  We couldn't be prouder to have such a wonderful Ushahidi community!
