Africa’s Voices awarded grant from Twilio.org to scale 1-to-1 communications with people in crisis

We are excited to announce that Africa’s Voices has been selected by Twilio as one of the 2019 Twilio.org Impact Grant Fund recipients. The grant will be used to further grow Katikati, our 1-to-1 two-way channel for open-text local language conversations at scale, to enable crisis-affected communities to engage with and hold aid actors into account. Katikati has already been deployed to support accountability towards humanitarian cash transfer recipients in Somalia and to embed youth voice in the design and implementation of employment programmes. Over the next year, we will be sharing frequent updates on the project and though it, the transformation we are trying to achieve: better responsiveness and outcomes, more citizen agency and voice, and greater dignity and ownership over humanitarian responses.
