The unsung local heroes who are really changing Africa

District Administration, Apr 29, 2013
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This is really intersting; I wish there were more sources of inffermation about what's actually happening in East Africa (I have to depend on the blogs and reports writtern by the World Bank and other such agencies, exactly the opposite of what's being presented here). "experts have recently identified far more radical, hidden changes occurring across the Continent. New technologies, when adopted, are adapted to local needs: a sort of under-the-radar innovation which is now pushing the boundaries of what is possible. Mark Kaigwa, Kenyan ICT guru, digital strategist and keynote speaker at eLearning Africa, explains the situation in his own country: 'it’s the organic stuff, initiated by the community and on the fringes… this is what’s really going to transform our country and the rest of the East African region, if not the whole Continent.'"
