SMS Voices: a community reporting project

Download the resource

SMS Voices is a pioneering governance pilot project launched by ENCISS in January 2014, designed to encourage transparent dialogue between citizens and local councillors through a custom-built SMS (text message) system.

This community reporting pilot project has helped to strengthen the interaction between the state and citizens in the participating areas. Here, we highlight some initial findings from the first five months of the pilot.
