There is substantial evidence that civil society organisations are at a significant disadvantage when it comes to leveraging technology effectively to improve and support development outcomes. There is a consistent need for reliable, trusted advice to help organisations navigate the technological landscape and drive innovation in the sector.

It was agreed that using this innovative channel for engagement with the broader civil society community would add value, help with digital transition and complement other initiatives that both partners are involved with.READ MORE

WHAT OTHERS SAY
Wow !Wow! Listening to the podcast was exciting. • The intro was the right length and captivating. The greetings in different languages is so inviting. I love the brief background music during the talk, in some ways it created a softening feel and evoked ‘compassion’ especially for an often heavy topic such as technology/e-learning which is not often digestible for many. • Sukaina & Jason are so knowledgeable on this topic and both Jason & Luvuyo were great in bringing up in the conversation the reality of how people engage with Technology especially in our context. • Loved the voice note questions also because they bring in a necessary voice and create inclusion • The recommendations and practicality is a big plus There is a lightness about the conversation style of this podcast, it’s somewhat refreshing which I find cool and sincere. Well done everyone, what a start!!!!
