Centre for Information and Communication Technology for Development (ICT4D), is a Not-For-Profit research organization that focuses on the intersection between contextually relevant technologies and multi sectorial rural development.
ICT4D was setup in 2015 by professionals from diverse backgrounds of technology, outreach/extension, data science, policy advocacy/development, system operations, learning/health systems, and more. While we are cognizant that numerous constraints plague effective and necessary development, there exist amazing opportunities in rural and peri-urban communities across Nepal and many regions of the global south.
As social entrepreneurs, ICT4D actively promotes project implementation which aligns with a Private-Public-Partnership (PPP) model. This ensures that development is is based on a collaborative construct between local governments and their respective participatory communities since external assistance is even more meaningful with active participation by local communities.
