In addition to this we are searching for general help for some of our pages (, and for coming projects - creativity is highly appreciated!

Conference coverage


One very important activity of is the coverage of conferences related to ICT4D worldwide.

News tracking


To keep track of news, interesting projects and people in ICT4D, it is necessary for us to read lots and lots of internet pages every day. This is a big workload and for us it is not possible to read and filter everything. Therefore we are searching for people interested and experienced in the area to assist in this task and contribute to the ICT4D blog.

Required skills:
