Twaweza’s Sauti za Wananchi (Voices of the Citizens) is Africa’s first nationally representative mobile phone survey. The initiative uses mobile phones to regularly collect information from a broad cross-section of Tanzanian citizens. This data is then released publicly and to the media, both in its raw form and via a series of high-visibility policy briefs. Scarcity of data is a challenge across the continent and Sauti za Wananchi aims to address this gap and collect survey data quickly and efficiently at low cost. It is the first of its kind in Africa.

Twaweza’s Sauti za Wananchi (Voices of the Citizens) is Africa’s first nationally representative mobile phone survey. Scarcity of data is a challenge across the continent and Sauti za Wananchi aims to address this gap and collect survey data quickly and efficiently at low cost. After three successful years in Tanzania, the initiative is expanding to Kenya for the first time. As in Tanzania, Sauti za Wananchi – Kenya will use mobile phones to regularly collect information from a broad cross-section of Kenyan citizens. This data will then be released publicly and to the media, both in its raw form and via a series of high-visibility policy briefs.

Sauti za Wananchi has two phases: the first consists of a standard household survey with face-to-face interviews. A representative sample of 2,000 adult Kenyans is randomly selected. During the baseline roll-out, mobile phones and solar chargers are distributed to all respondents. This ensures a representative sample that is not biased by previous mobile phone ownership (something that typically skews towards the wealthy). In the second phase, respondents are interviewed once or twice a month using their new phones.

Twaweza is looking for a competent and reputable organization which can implement the following activities related to Sauti za Wananchi in Kenya.

Task 1: Undertake a field-based baseline survey for the random sample of 2,000 households in enumeration areas (EAs) sampled by Twaweza

Task 2: Run call rounds for the Sauti za Wananchi sample of 2,000 households for an initial duration of 3 months, renewable on the first month of each year for the duration of the sample life (expected to be 2 ½  years). In 2015 5 household call rounds are expected.
