What is the Ushahidi Platform

We built the Ushahidi platform as a tool to easily crowdsource information using multiple channels, including SMS, email, Twitter and the web.

Manage the River of Information

SwiftRiver is an open source platform that aims to democratize access to tools for filtering & making sense of real-time information.

Crowdsourcing In "the cloud"

When you need to get the Ushahidi platform up in 2 minutes to crowdsource information, Crowdmap will do it for you. It’s our hosted version of the Ushahidi platform.

Ushahidi is one of the few social enterprises that has, in just a few short years of existence, dramatically changed the face of how individuals and communities can influence democracy and economic development around the world.
