One of the key factors in a Nation’s democratic success is how engaged and inclusive her Government is. However, the health of any democratic society may be measured by the levels of engagement and inclusion of the private citizen. This many times fall on the hands of the CSOs and NGOs. A generation ago, it was virtually impossible for Africans to make a demand on Government except by protests and civil disobedience. Today, we have seen campaigns like #Budget of Corruption in Nigeria force the Government to withdraw a national budget filled with inflated costs and re-present a new one after a proper review. Civic Tech is working and it can only play a bigger role in promoting true democracy. The Civic Hub is modelled as an accelerator to help social or civil intervention grow into systems for Citizens’ – Government engagement.
CivicHub was created to address the following social need: How does someone so mad about creating a change in the society get started? Why can’t there be a school for those whose passion is to build new and effective social interventions? Why can’t the same tools, techniques and technologies that have been used to build the most profitable products and services across the world, be used to build the most impactful social interventions?
CivicHub also opens it’s doors to CSOs and NGOs to collaboratively explore new technological solutions that can help increase the impact of their work.
In our preliminary survey we identified 174 young people who have created one form of intervention to reverse a social injustice they have observe. CivicHub owes it to them to help them scale,
We offer fellowship to 6 great minds every year. But through partnership with other NGOs and CSOs who want to start their own fellowship programs, we hope to extend it to 16 slots annually.
Over 64% of all our work is done through a network of volunteer developers, who contribute their code and sweat to the most difficult Civic Tech gigs.
With our community CivicHub would not hope to achieve its goals. We are hoping to change the world get raising teams of people who believe they can as well.
