DESIGN AND INOVATION

 

Design and technology is able to drive systemic progress

 
 
 

Scaling a social business is not the only way to drive systemic change. In partnership with Fjord we are proving that the use of design and technology is able to achieve a transformative level of impact. 

Fjord is an international digital design consultancy that is owned by Accenture. Our collaboration began in late 2015 and already we have worked together on two major projects, one at New Hope Hospital in Kavumu,

and the other for the Chefferie on the island of Idjwi in Lake Kivu where we have set up internet access and a public communication service called Pamoja Net.

The vast majority of people in Eastern DRC have little understanding of design and no experience of technologies such as the internet, and so it is with care and intelligence that we are moving forward.
