The information in this wiki hasn't been maintained for a good while. Some of the projects described have since been deprecated.

In particular, the "Ushahidi Platform v3.x" section contains information that is often misleading. Many details about this version of Platform have changed since.

This website is an extraction of the original Ushahidi wiki into a static form. Because of that, functions like logging in, commenting or searching will not work.

How are we doing?

We know that the feedback loop for the Ushahidi community is broken.  Help us make some changes to improve:

Current state: Community members give feedback a number of ways:

  • skype
  • twitter
  • forums
  • github issues
  • facebook
  • contact AT ushahidi DOT com
  • email core team
  • email mailing list
  • talk with team at events
  • surveys, feedback forms

This is not working for our community. The launch of GitHub Issues is helpful for the technical community members. However, Ushahidi is 90% Everything and 10% technology. If we aim to support our community members, we need to find better ways to share, collaborate and act on feedback. This means transparent, community-driven change. Your input is welcome. The Forums (with a better platform) might help, but only if people's questions are rated and get answered in a timely manner.

Recommended Change: Idea Space for Non-techies


  • Easy to use
  • Accessible
  • Transparent
  • Not to technical
  • Voting up/down topics
  • Include as a tab on
