About Africa’s Voices Foundation
Africa’s Voices Foundation (AVF) is a non-profit organisation, spun out of ongoing cutting-edge research at the University of Cambridge with a branch office in Nairobi, Kenya. We conduct innovative research and produce powerful, insightful evidence that helps to amplify the voices of Africans towards key policymakers and service deliverers.
In media forums we spark inclusive, interactive discussions, and gather audience opinions through SMS, instant messaging, and social media. We analyse these conversations – often in low-resource local languages – using our own tested methods. We combine social science frameworks with data science techniques to provide powerful insights into the beliefs, ideas and priorities of hard-to reach populations and social groups, and how these change over time. Our evidence helps organisations and decision-makers to better understand, engage with, and respond to beneficiary populations.
Our core business is organised in two program areas: Governance & Accountability, and Evidence-Based Social Behaviour Change. To date we have worked across health, education, humanitarian, governance, livelihoods, security and agriculture domains for a range of partners including UNICEF, Oxfam, Mastercard Foundation, World University Service Canada (WUSC), Livity Africa, Shujaaz, REACH, World Vision, World Bank and BBC Media Action.
AVF combines rigorous academic research and a commitment to innovation with real-world impact. We provide our researchers with a vibrant interface to world-leading university research. Team members often work with faculty, advisors, external researchers, and student interns to bring the latest ideas into our working practices. Our work has been recognised internationally, including being awarded the Market Research Society’s ‘President’s Medal’ in 2016 for our work with UNICEF in Somalia. We have offices in Nairobi, Kenya.
