Innovating for PwD

Technological innovations are helping us develop in an unprecedented manner. But, to achieve an ever-lasting development and impact, innovations should aim to be inclusive for all. And the world has made a commitment to do this through the UN’s SDG9 Goal: Reducing Inequalities commitment. 

To make this happen in Somalia, we’re privileged to announce, in collaboration with UNDP Somalia Accelerator Lab, Tech-Empowered Innovation Camp for People with Disabilities (PwD), an Innovation Camp for developing new assistive technologies for persons with disabilities in Somalia, from December 5 – 9, 2021.

The camp targets the ICT and innovation companies and startups to take part in empowering the persons with disabilities through designing and developing new assistive technologies.

Therefore, if you think you have the technical capacity to develop ICT solutions for people with disabilities (PwD), here is the registration link. We’re looking forward to innovating with you for PwD in Somalia. #InclusiveDevelopment
