Commitment to Action

Help Addressing Humanitarian Crisis by Crowdsourcing

Commitment by

Ushahidi

In 2008, Ushahidi committed to develop open source software that will allow the crowdsourcing of crisis information via mobile, email, and the web. It will be made available for free to NGOs around the world in order to address the communication and visualization challenges during humanitarian crises. The goal is to help organizations responding to crisis situations get rapid access to data from the field through various sources, to enable those following the crisis to know where to direct help, and to enable affected populations to receive alerts related to the crisis via email or mobile.
