Is Information and Communications Technology (ICT) a paper tiger? Technology for the sake of technology? Don’t make Jidaw laugh. The world depends on ICT. ICT enables the knowledge economy. ICT is the tool not the objective.
The world has passed the stage of the why in ICT for Development. A main concern of Jidaw is the “how tos” – how to employ ICT to drive Development, how to get ICT to address the real issues of poverty, hunger and unemployment..
ICT is more than infrastructure; ICT is an instrument for social and economic progress. ICT is not simply about consumption, neither is it an elitist tool of the urban-rich. Great vision means seeing Nigeria as an ICT producing and creating nation that leverages on ICT to facilitate inclusive, sustainable development and overall prosperity.
The potential in ICT is incredible. But without deliberate policies and advocacy ICT widens the digital divide. Jidaw advocates ICT for development through promoting the improvement of the business environment, Education, public infrastructure, governance, societal culture and formulation and implementation of the required strategies and policies.
How people can improve their lives. How to ensure people fulfill their roles and potentials. ICT MUST make a Difference!
Join Jidaw in advocating the development of an inclusive, globally competitive and prosperous Nigeria that is significantly information technology-based and knowledge-driven
