Staff Writer | ABC | June 21, 2013

Ushahidi is a word that means testimony in Swahili. It's also a website that aggregates a whole lot of data: texts, tweets, photos and descriptions from mobile phones to give a true picture of what's happening on the ground during emergencies.

It's main goal is to empower Kenyans to document and report events in real time.
