Partners

Page history last edited by sbalsari 10 years, 10 months ago

 

Vote Report India seeks to partner with civil society and media organizations working towards promoting transparency and accountability in the Indian election process.

 

We basically need four things from partners, in the following order :-

1. On ground presence to report incidents

2. Manpower to help us process/ verify reports

3. Credibility with media/ civil society organizations.

4. Visibility with common people so that they use the platform.

 

We'll update this list, as we close partnerships/ endorsements.

 

Founding Partners


 

Ushahidi is an award-winning platform that crowdsources crisis information.  It is a free and open source platform that allows anyone to gather information via SMS, email or the web and visualize it on a map and timeline.  First developed for use in the post-election violence in Kenya in 2008, the platform has continued development by a volunteer team of mostly African developers.
