Dear Uchaguzians,

We, the Ushahidi team, are completely honoured, humbled, and amazed with your contributions to the Uchaguzi platform to monitor the 2013 Kenyan elections. As we mentioned via Skype and on the Uchaguzi SitRoom blog, this project would not have been possible had you not given so much and so generously of your time, dedicated to giving voice to Kenyans during this historic time. Together we managed over 5000 reports in the system with many more to assess and add as we continue to publish and review.

You joined this from the iHub in Nairobi, from your homes and offices in Kenya, and from around the world. The collective effort on this project was the largest effort with over 220 people working online to manage information in digital teams. You worked alongside our partners in the field. Your speed and dedication is beyond measure.

Reflection and improvements are important, we've created an Uchaguzi Community Survey for your review and input. Your answers can be anonymous. Rhoda Omenya from Ihub research is tasked on completing a review of Uchaguzi. We'll be sure to share results with you.
