[Kemôk] means “to weave” in the Mayan language Q’eqchi’. We founded Kemok on the values of building superior solutions, transforming businesses, society, co-creating change and doing the right thing.

EleccionesVisibles.org - ELECTION Monitoring

Kemok partners with GuatemalaVisible to provide a platform, elleccionesvisibles.org to monitor election fraud in Guatemala's 2015 elections.

We are using crowdsourcing techniques to collect data, then analyze, and communicate reports of violence during the month before and after the elections. Anyone in Guatemala is able to submit a report through an App, SMS, Twitter, Facebook, or a website.  

We have three specific goals for this initiative: 

  1. Communicate our analysis through maps and digestible reports to take preventive measures. 
  2. Gain insights into election-related fraud in Guatemala and abroad. 
  3. Strengthen Guatemala's new focus on transparency and violence prevention.
