Uadamen Ilevbaoje is a Project Manager for Tracka, for BudgIT, a Nigeria-based civic organization focused on simplifying public data and making the budget accessible to all Nigerians across all literacy spans.

Uadamen works at grassroots and sub-national levels within rural communities, facilitating interactions between citizens and the government on the implementation. Uadamen believes that the transformation of Africa is in the hands of citizens so he works to empower citizens to monitor projects and ensure greater transparency in service delivery.
