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.

Executive Director
I have worked in Kenya since 2001, after two previous years of internship with the Cheetah Conservation Fund in Namibia. Our studies are in affiliation with the Kenya Wildlife Service and permitted through the Kenyan Ministry of Science and Technology. I completed my Master of Environmental Management at Yale University School of Forestry and environmental Studies in 2011 using data from ten years of national cheetah surveys and focused area projects to develop models for conservation planning and conflict mitigation.
