Promises are easy to make. They are made by politicians running for office across the world.

But how many of them are kept once the ballots are counted and victory parades are over?

As a citizen, you have the right to know whether the promises your president or prime minister made to get elected have actually been kept.

What will the African Election Promise Tracker help you do?

  1. Log and track promises made by presidents elected in 4 African countries on a dedicated website,
  2. Let you know if those promises have been kept or broken,
  3. Enable you to advocate for greater transparency and accountability in your country.

Support our Crowdfunding Campaign running from 23 October to 15 December 2017.
