The “Digital for Development” (D4D)/ “ICT for Development” (ICT4D) is the application of technology for social, economic and political development.
Digital technologies foster sustainable development in various areas of the economy, from education, health, finance, agriculture, communication, transport and energy.
In the education sector, digital learning technologies can accelerate progress in underperforming education systems in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Increased access to digital learning technologies can improve learning outcomes, enhance educator effectiveness and prepare learners for absorption in an increasingly digitized workforce.
Sisi Afrika recognizes the increasingly faster flow of people and ideas across borders, with attendant omnipresent technologies, and believes that Africans must be equipped with the knowledge and skills to become constructive global citizens in the midst of fast-paced social and economic changes.
