To help people in Africa and Latin America access the information that can transform their lives, we use ICT: Information and Communication Technology. We help local partners from the non-profit, public and private sectors use ICT to meet their development goals in economic development, education, health and gender.
Technology is what we use: it’s not our main objective. The solutions we help implement must be practical and sustainable. That’s why IICD uses radio and TV as well as modern media like internet and mobile phones to bring people the information they need.
And together we do make a difference. We currently reach nearly 6 million people in eleven different countries through our programmes.
