“No one is born a good citizen, no nation is born a democracy. Both are processes that evolve over a lifetime.”

– Kofi Annan

Is EiE Helping?

Dear Citizen,

EiE is 5!!!!

Thank you for joining us on this journey to improve governance in Nigeria.

NOW, we need your help to develop programs and tools to serve you and others better to strengthen our growing democracy. Can you please help EiE become more effective by taking this survey that will help us understand what inspires you to take action and hold our leaders accountable?

We want to know how to serve you better and your feedback will help us make sure that happens! Do you want to sign more petitions, meet decision makers, volunteer or donate money? We want to know if our emails are too long, too frequent or if our website is giving you problems. The idea of this survey is for you to tell us what you like and what you don’t like so we can ensure we are serving you in the best possible way to collectively have more impact.

It’s a relatively short survey and not all questions are required, but we really need your help and would appreciate it if you would complete the survey.

We rely on your voice to do the work we do. While we have never formally administered a poll to get feedback, we get emails, tweets and phone calls and these have shaped our activities over the years. With your voices and our partners, we’ve made impact with the #OccupyNigeria & #OurNASS protests; we’ve seen individuals and communities get help from their local governments, DISCOs and State Governments; and we’ve seen international response to our petition to deny visas. These are all milestones that would not have been possible without you!

Our community continues to grow but we don’t know if you are in Lagos or London; Niger or New York! Feedback from this survey will also help us target messages and requests for action in a more productive way.

Please answer this survey NOW or over the weekend :). For those of you enthusiastic to get more involved or give us more detailed feedback, make sure you give us your number so we can follow up.

The results of the survey will be published in June.

Thank you for taking the time! – Adupe! Dalu! Nagode!
