About Us

Code for Ghana is part of the Code for Africa initiative which aims to use open data and technology to promote responsive, innovative and effective governance.

Code for Ghana follows in the tradition of Code for Kenya and Code for South Africa by embedding software developers and data fellows in media organisations for a period of six months. During this period, the Data Fellows and Developers are expected to work with their host organisations on open data projects. Code for Ghana is jointly funded by the African Innovative News Challenge and Making All Voices Count with support from the Webfoundation

What We Do

We embed developers and data fellows in newsrooms to create innovative platforms for better information dissemination and encourage collective action through citizen engagement

We organise data bootcamps to share knowledge on open-data tools and demonstrate the value of open-data to the broader soceity.

We build civic apps and platforms that will keep citizens well informed so that they can demand accountability, transparency and better services from the government.

We partner with CSOs, NGOs and Government organisations to bring meaning to their data-sets.

We are also doing something bolder; we are taking a different approach to open governance.
