Zambia Country Guide-(Connect for Change-C4C)

Dutch development organisations and specialized ICT organisations Akvo, Cordaid, Edukans, ICCO and IICD have decided to collaborate by setting-up the Connect4Change Consortium.

ICT has changed and is changing the world. It is one of the main drivers behind globalisation, the creation of economic opportunities and empowerment of individuals. ICT has changed the lives of millions for the better and is an important tool in fighting poverty. Yet, many lack the possibility to profit from the opportunities arising. Realisation of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) will be accelerated by using ICT in a smart and sustainable way. It is against this background that Dutch development organisations and specialized ICT organisations Akvo, Cordaid, Edukans, ICCO and IICD have decided to collaborate by setting-up the Connect4Change Consortium. The consortium works closely together with preferred partner Text to Change.

For the years 2011 – 2016 the five consortium members Akvo, Cordaid, Edukans, ICCO and IICD have jointly submitted a programme proposal for MFS II funding from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. This programme supports activities being carried out together with preferred partner Text to Change in sectors education, health and livelihoods in countries Bolivia, Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Kenya, Ghana, Mali, Malawi, Peru, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia.
