To create a community of problem-solvers
Wenyenchi is a citizen engagement platform where Kenyan citizens or residents can monitor development projects initiated by the national and counties governments through uploading of images and a brief description of the issue being captured by the concerned citizens.
A Rating System
The platform uses a scorecard of between 1 and 5. 1 means that the problem is ongoing and hasn't been solved while 5 means that the problem has been completely solved. In this format citizens, researchers and policy analysts can track the progress of the problem and the success of implemented solutions. Constant Feedback from the community members will help in succesful implementation and evaluation of a solution.
The platform provides a scorecard to measure economic progress.The information collected from community members and then analyzed by experts can be used in land use planning, business / entrepreneurship capacity development, natural resource development, utilization of traditional community lands and social capacity. The platform gives opportunities for community members to connect with other community members and problem-solvers from any part of the country or the world and this will improve social cohesion and increase the transfer of knowledge. We will be using the information to create sustainable development models.
This project is for everyone; from a high school student, university professor, government official, company executive, journalist, ordinary citizens to university students. There are no qualifications or conditions to be part of the project. We are crowdsourcing problem-solving. We believe that sustainable homegrown solutions are the key to unlocking the mighty potential of the African continent.
Create an account
Register and start reviewing development projects or services. All you need is a smartphone with a camera and an internet connection. Once you have identified a problem in an area. Take a picture and write a review about it. Share it with community members and then the problem-solving starts. Note that the picture is optional. You can write a review without a picture but a picture is worth a 1000 words.
Relax we are just getting started
We would like to add at least half of the Sub-saharan countries to the platform by 2025 and the rest by 2030. we willbe adding data analysis tools like 3D charts, line graphs, and maps to give users an even richer experience.
Our goal is to reach at least 50,000 community members and problem-solvers and then we can start the hiring process, We will be recruiting project managers, animators, writers, data analysts, developers, and other office staff. For now you can volunteer as a mobilizer or a "wenyenchi ambassador". Mobilizers will be considered first whenever a position needs to be filled.
"Indicators reﬂect individuals’ perceptions of relevant dimensions of human development; education quality, health care quality, standard of living, personal safety, freedom of choice and overall life satisfaction."
In economics and political science, financial policy is the use of government revenue collection and expenditure to influence the economy.
There are two ways of achieving service delivery. The‘long route’ of citizens’ involvement in national or local politics to pressure government to deliver services; or through the ‘short route’ of citizens engaging directly with public or private service providers.
Education is fundamental to development and growth. The human mind makes possible all development achievements, from health advances and agricultural innovations to efficient public administration and private sector growth. For countries to reap these benefits fully, they need to unleash the potential of the human mind.
Four out of every five deaths of children under age five occur in Sub-Saharan Africa and Southern Asia. Only half of women in developing regions receive the recommended amount of health care they need. AIDS is now the leading cause of death among adolescents (aged 10–19) in Africa and the second most common cause of death among adolescents globally.
Land, Water & Waste Management
Water is a finite and irreplaceable resource that is fundamental to human well-being. It is only renewable if well managed. Today, more than 1.7 billion people live in river basins where depletion through use exceeds natural recharge, a trend that will see two-thirds of the world’s population living in water-stressed countries by 2025. Water can pose a serious challenge to sustainable development but managed efficiently and equitably, water can play a key enabling role in strengthening the resilience of social, economic and environmental systems in the light of rapid and unpredictable changes.
Diversity management refers to organizational actions that aim to promote greater inclusion of employees from different backgrounds into an organization's structure through specific policies and programs.
