Track My Mayor is a promise tracker aimed at increasing accountability at local government level. The project consists of:
- A website that contains a database of promises made by mayors, which newsrooms, NGOs and citizens can use to do promise tracking of their own.
- Storytelling/reporting, which focuses on the effects of the implementation of promises or the lack thereof on citizens.
- An engagement project that uses Whatsapp to involve community leaders and/or activists in our promise-tracking efforts.
