Discover the Stories Behind the Data

PesaYetu helps storytellers and campaigners use data to add context and depth to stories.

How It Works


Find Facts

Population and financial figures are broken down by category: Elections, Demographics, Service Delivery, Economics, and Education.

Visualize

Our library of charts gives you insight into data from places you research. Look for them on profile pages. You can embed the charts on your own site.

Get Context

Pre-computed statistics are presented alongside each data point so you can see how each place fits into a large context.
