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.

Sam Rich is the CEO at eLimu. He as spent over 10 years as an education and behavior change consultant from the UK. In London, he began work as a journalist, before dabbling in design, then training as a teacher, and briefly dipping his toes into the dot-com sector. Ten years ago he moved to East Africa in a brave attempt to marry these skills by working as a behavior change consultant. Since then he’s done everything from designing education campaigns for farmers, to producing radio ads about election abuses, and developing mobile apps for microfinance organizations. He produced animations for Limu and built the prototype for our new literacy app before coming on board full time in 2015.
