The annual ICT4D Conferences have proven to be an invaluable opportunity for NGOs, private sector organizations, universities, governmental agencies and foundations to share their experience in using ICT to increase the impact of development programs and to learn from each other.  In 2016, 715 individuals from 76 countries and 301 private sector and public sector and civil society explored the ways to harness the full power of digital solutions to achieve the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.  Our thanks to Accenture, Catholic Relief Services, Esri, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, iMerit Technology Services, Inmarsat, IS Solutions, Making All Voices Count, Mercy Corps, Microsoft, NetHope, Oxfam, Pandexio, Qualcom Wireless Reach, RTI International, SimbaNet and World Vision for making that possible.

Using Technology to Improve Education & Learning Outcomes
We wish to display our innovative payments and data technology that is currently being used in a large-scale intervention in Kenya that supports 150,000 primary schoolchildren, in 205 schools. The programme uses technology to improve education and learning outcomes by delivering:
  • Digital attendance monitoring using a NFC-enabled tablet and contactless smart card to capture data transactions in rural settings
  • Merchant Android based tablet - used to process payments for food & goods for programme beneficiaries 
We would also like to share our experience and best practices in developing these pieces of technology, and in operating the intervention. Please see www.imlango.com and www.squidcard.com for more information.
