Infonet’s expertise combines technology and thematic foci such as human rights, gender, governance & democracy.
INFONET is a technological innovation and development facility that is committed to expand the democratic space by strengthening the role of citizens and their interaction with civil society and the state in fostering democratic governance through the strategic use of technology.
While acknowledging the limitations of technology, we recognize the importance of partnerships in maximizing the value of our interventions. In this regard, we develop connections and support diverse activities rooted on capacity building on issues of service delivery, transparency & accountability, public resource management, civil society strengthening and elections as a critical phase of democratization.
Our niche in technology, rootedness in citizen’s perspectives and a unique partnership strategy sets us apart from other organizations in the field, providing unparalleled synergies and depth in vision to address the challenges of development in a rapidly changing socio-cultural and economic context. This enables us harness the skills and experience of the very best of researchers, technologists, development experts, activists, policy makers alike, to meet the macro, micro and retail needs of citizens.
INFONET, within its short history has become a key player in shaping technology policy and praxis at local, regional and international level.
