People and Power. In 2008, Kenyan activists and developers outraged by post-election violence came together to found Ushahidi, an innovative crowd-sourcing platform that collected and mapped reports of violence from across the country while traditional media struggled to keep up. Since then, Ushahidi has been used to protect human lives and human rights across the world: from mapping the destruction in Haiti after the 2010 earthquake and documenting extreme weather in Asia to recording voter suppression during the 2016 US election.
