The Nuru App

We know that the COVID-19 crisis has affected citizens’ movements, work and business environment. We also know that curfews that have been implemented in some areas are limiting the time that people can access different services and this has led to different sets of challenges.

The Open Institute (OI) team has developed a mobile app called Nuru, which is built for the purpose of activating citizens all over the country to monitor the impact of the COVID-19 crisis in Kenya. The app is used to report on the impact of COVID-19 in their communities from availability and cost of food, water and other necessities, incidents - including security incidents among others.

You can get Nuru on Google Play Store or on the Apple Store
