[Angela Oduor Lungati, Ushahidi] Ok great. We have two ways to get set up with Ushahidi

  1. Install the platform code base on your own servers. You can do so by downloading the code off our github page. I believe this is what you've been trying and have been having trouble with?
  2. Make use of our cloud based service. We have different plans to choose from available here: https://www.ushahidi.com/plans . However, we offer licenses grassroots organizations that are aligned with Ushahidi's mission and can demonstrate a yearly operating budget of less than $250k USD per year. This is the link that my colleague David shared with you here: https://www.ushahidi.com/plans/apply-for-free

I hope this is helpful?

[Angela Oduor Lungati, Ushahidi] Your election project sounds like it would be eligible

[Angela Oduor Lungati, Ushahidi] The platform is free, if you're hosting on your own servers. When hosted on our servers, you choose a plan that suits your needs at a fee. However, with a grassroots license, you would not pay. All you need to do is fill in an application.
