BudgIT is a start-up that provides Nigerian citizens with access to and understanding of public budgets. The organization’s vision is to help shape good policy by ensuring the public can exercise their right to access and understand government data and redefine participatory governance and media awareness using open-source tools that assist in the nation’s budget reporting process.

Founded at Tech-in-Governance, a Co-Creation Hub event, BudgIT shares government data through simple tweets and citizen-friendly videos and infographic displays. The organization also partners on projects that improve government transparency and strengthen institutional capacity in Nigeria.
