  • We embed developers and data fellows in newsrooms to create innovative platforms for better information dissemination and encourage collective action through citizen engagement
  • We organise data bootcamps to share knowledge on open-data tools and demonstrate the value of open-data to the broader soceity.
  • We build civic apps and platforms that will keep citizens well informed so that they can demand accountability, transparency and better services from the government.
  • We partner with CSOs, NGOs and Government organisations to bring meaning to their data-sets.
  • We are also doing something bolder; we are taking a different approach to open governance.

Code for Ghana aims to help shape the open data movement in Ghana. One way we achieve this is by regular meet ups. During these sessions, we bring together open data enthusiastes to share their expertise and experience with the wider community.
