Press Statement: Odekro Awarded Grant by The Indigo Trust

Odekro is pleased to announce that we have been awarded a grant of £20,000 + by our main grant partners The Indigo Trust.

The Indigo Trust is part of the Sainsbury Family Charitable Trusts. It is a UK based grant making foundation that funds technology-driven projects to bring about social change, largely in African countries. The Trust’s principal areas of interest lie in transparency, accountability and citizen empowerment.

The Indigo Trust’s grant will support Odekro’s core activities, allowing us to hire permanent members of staff and to produce high quality content at a much faster rate than we could in the past.

Its disbursement comes at a crucial time for Odekro as we aim to provide Ghanaian voters with fact-based evaluations of their MPs’ performances in Parliament ahead of the 2016 Parliamentary and Presidential elections.

We are grateful to the Indigo Trust for their support and shall ensure the grant is managed prudently and effectively.

We shall continue to work with Ghanaian citizens - our most important stakeholders- to ensure our Parliament is transparent and accountable.
