HO MUNICIPAL ASSEMBLY BEGINS CITIZENS-GENERATED DATA COLLECTION PROJECT.
The Ho Municipal Assembly, in collaboration with the Ghana Statistical Service as part of a nationwide program, launched a “Citizens Generated Data Project” on Thursday 11th May 2023. The Citizens Generated Data Collection exists to complement the census data. It is called “Citizens Generated Data” because, unlike the census where enumerators are deployed across town, the citizens generate the data themselves using their phones with the aid of mobile Apps or short codes. The project is focused on:
- Waste Management: where citizens can take pictures and report on uncollected garbage for action to be taken. Be it household or communal waste.
- Gender-Based Violence: where citizens who face or suffer any form of Gender-Based Violence would have the opportunity to report using their phones.
The general public is hereby entreated to visit the “Play Store” and download.
- “Let’s Talk” App – for Gender-Based Violence and
- “CleanApp Ghana” App – for Solid Waste.
Those without Android phones can use the following short codes. *800*818# for reporting Gender-Based Violence and *920*58# for reporting on solid waste, to enable us all to contribute to a clean municipality that is also free of gender-based violence.
For further clarifications kindly contact the Municipal Environmental Health Officer on 0243948374, CEO of Love Aid Foundation on 0240634185, and the Municipal Statistician on 0557232725.
