Africa's Voices is a non-profit organisation, spun out of cutting-edge research at the University of Cambridge. Our mission is to listen to citizens’ authentic voices in spaces they value and turn this engagement into rigorous social insights which accelerate social impact.

We are based in Nairobi, Kenya and Cambridge, UK.

Priorities as a partner of the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data

Africa’s Voices deploys three core capabilities to enable authentic, unfiltered citizen voice to be heard all the way to decision-making and ultimately to affect the success of the SDGs: social science, media, and data, and technology.

We deploy novel mixed methods for social analysis, harness Africa’s rich media landscape to engage citizens in large-scale discussions, and apply tailored technology for speed and scale to draw timely and actionable insights that guide decision-makers to put citizens at the core of their work to enhance their impact.
