Things may be moving slowly in the world of officialdom. But people are not always waiting for their governments to do everything in their daily lives. According to Rakesh Rajani, Twaweza's Head, despite bureaucratic service delivery systems citizens find ways to get things done.
Twaweza works with the five networks to fuel flows of information, stories, and ideas to make it easier for people to get, make, and share information and ideas. Twaweza helps spread information about rights, laws and budgets, as well as information on how citizens compare with their neighbors. All of this has stimulated informed public debate.
Twaweza’s idea is very simple, Rajani stated: We identify what reaches people at scale and works, we get behind it and enable it to fly higher.
