Ushahidi Wins Webby Award

Ushahidi, which translates to “testimony” in Swahili, was developed to map reports of violence in Kenya after the post-election violence in 2008. Since then, thousands have used our crowdsourcing tools to raise their voice. We’re a technology leader in Africa, headquartered in Nairobi, with a global team.

Kenya’s Ushahidi scooped the Webby Award yesterday last night, being awarded  by TED’s Chris Anderson, the award was presented to Ushahidi‘s co founder David Kobia.

Last year Ushahidi won the Monaco Media Prize form Prince Albert at the Monaco Media Forum.
