About Africa's Voices

Africa’s Voices emerged out of four years of research on politics and interactive media in Africa at the Centre of Governance and Human Rights (CGHR), University of Cambridge. 

In late 2014, Africa’s Voices launched as an independent, non-profit organisation and UK-registered charity. Our core funders and supporters include The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, The David and Elaine Potter Foundation, Linklaters, The Cairns Charitable Trust, and the Centre for Global Equality at the University of Cambridge.

Now a rapidly growing organisation, Africa’s Voices has established offices in Nairobi and Cambridge. In five years, we have amplified the voices of over 400,000 citizens in evidence-based programming in Somalia, Kenya, South Africa, Uganda, and Cape Verde on priorities ranging from public health, education and agriculture to local governance, tax justice and humanitarian programming. We maintain close academic links with the University of Cambridge, and continue to collaborate with researchers to bring about innovative interdisciplinary approaches to social change grounded in citizen voice.
