Johannesburg, South Africa

Grassroot is a civic tech tool plaform that uses web, mobile app, USSD, Whatsapp and social media, it allows informal settlements citizens to engage with other members, call meetings, take votes, mobilise rallies and create actions lists. Communities can also start crowdfunding campaigns to raise funds for example the campaign to raise funds for the construction of new toilets in the Mzondi community in Ivory Park which raised about R68 890, excedeeding the community's R60 000 goal. Communities can also create community groups for different purposes. In total as of 17 October Grassroot had a total of 19 433 groups. In total Grassroot has about 169 037 users (October stats).

In every community there are men and women who have the fire within to create change.
Mobilizing and organizing takes skill and time and money. So many who might lead do not. Those who do must spend most of their time on basic tasks rather than learning, planning and inspiring.

We have built a platform to change this. It consists of purpose-built tools that solve real problems for people who wish to organize their communities. It connects such leaders to each other, and allows the easy aggregation and analysis of the issues they tackle.
