As we continue our series of introducing the RLabs Innovation Incubator and Accelerator social enterprises, this week we feature miGOx (My Interactive GOvernment eXperience).
miGOx is a technology platform allowing citizens to access open and available government information from a variety of sources via their mobile phone. The information will be rendered in a user-friendly interface allowing citizens to access it via their mobile phone browsers and popular African Mobile Social Network (Mxit) a strategic partner of RLabs. miGOx will also provide citizens the opportunity to monitor promises on service delivery to keep Government officials accountable for the public services that citizens have a right to access. If citizens are unhappy about the service delivery then they’ll be able to flag and rank a service and this will provide them the opportunity to communicate their experiences via the miGOx platform.
The idea is to have a social open governance platform that is easy to use and allow everyone to contribute to the well-being of their communities. miGOx is currently part of the class of 2012 in the RLabs InnovIA, which is the 9 month social enterprise incubation programme hosted by RLabs and partners.
