ICT FOR SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT
The MTDS team is specialized in Information Communication Technology (ICT) applications for social development initiatives.
MTDS works to put information technology in the hands of those that need it most. The Internet and related communication technologies offer outstanding opportunities to empower people by enabling the free flow of ideas and access to information and knowledge.
Our job is exciting but it is hardly known. MTDS team is specialized in Information Communication Technology (ICT) applications for development initiatives. Practitioners of innovative social development refer to it as ‘ICT for Development’ or ICT4D. ICTs are at the foundation of unprecedented social and economic transformations.
Over the last 15 years, it has contributed to innovative development activities in more than 20 countries across Africa and the Arab World and have an extensive network of experts, customers and partners who consistently demonstrate their ability.
“OUR GOAL IS TO FOSTER THESE CHANGES BY IMPLEMENTING SUSTAINABLE IT PROJECTS FOR THE BENEFIT OF COUNTRIES AND COMMUNITIES WHERE IT CAN MAKE A POSITIVE IMPACT.”
The rise of Free and Open Source Software (low cost or free of charge, open for adaptation and further development) represents a unique opportunity for developing countries. MTDS supports the use and diffusion of such applications in a sustainable and cost effective way, through advocacy initiatives, training workshops and developing user-friendly web and mobile applications for non-profit organizations. We build and deploy tools and Web services that help our clients and partners communicate and collaborate with their communities (board, staff, partners), elaborate reports, evaluate and monitor projects activities or to share strategic information with the public, funders, and other organizations.
Our ICT4D unit is specialized in designing and implementing programs that apply information technology and communication to address social and economic development opportunities and challenges.
We provide consulting services for projects design and implementation, information management systems development, e-learning, training, evaluation and monitoring and communication strategies. We have previously managed, as sub-contractors of funders like MEPI, USAID, UNDP, UE and UNCTA, consulting and training activities in diverse sectors including business facilitation, education, civil society organizations capacity building, economic growth and disability.
We believe that the world is changing. We want to be part of those who are reshaping it with one single idea in mind: information is a wealth that has to be shared with everyone.
