ICT4D Africa

ICT4D Africa is an open group developed to identify, promote and facilitate the use of information and communication technologies to drive the development process in Africa. How can ICT be used to close the digital gaps? Is ICT really helping or hurting Africa? ICT4D Africa aims to share and use information on how ICT aid economic growth, enhance social harmony and help the traditionally excluded. Digital inclusion is not an option – it is a necessity.

The focus is on how African nations, organizations (commercial, educational and social) and people can achieve growth and be more competitive through the use of ICT. The aim is overall prosperity – education, poverty reduction, employment, wealth creation – for ALL.
Africa needs to develop and ICT must realize its potential through the profitable and sustainable use of ICT to transform lives in Africa.
