The initiative allows survey data to be gathered quickly and efficiently, at low cost, to inform citizens of what's going on and to support policy-makers to be more responsive to the needs and aspirations of citizens.

SIM Cards: A taxing issue

As debate continues about a recently introduced tax on all SIM cards in Tanzania, Sauti za Wananchi contributes the most recent nationally representative data of the issue.

Access to Information

Almost all (97%) citizens recognise the picture of H.E. President Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete, while less than 1 out of 10 of them can explain MKUKUTA (7%) or Vision 2025 (5%). The best known high profile national policy is Kilimo Kwanza which 3 out of 10 citizens (33%) have heard of and can explain. After President Kikwete, less than half (48%) can identify Prime Minister Mizengo Pinda. At the same time, almost half (42%) of citizens would like government to make more data and information public.

Capitation grant receipts in schools in just the first quarter of 2013 are reported to be almost equal to the average that was disbursed for the whole year over the previous three years. However, parents are unable to follow up on funds as 8 out of 10 parents do not know how much capitation grant should be disbursed each year.
