WHAT WE BELIEVE IN
Some of our guiding principles to ensure that no one is left behind.
In the absence of alternative, more participatory, credible and transparent channels of communication, Tech Tribes looks at ways through which technology and digital media can help foster enhanced participation in governance and decision making.
Our work aims to contribute to the creation of an enabling environment for active youth, cause-driven groups and nonprofits to meaningfully engage as active citizens in dialogue that shapes decisions in more participatory, inclusive, and effective ways.
We intend to act as an open-source of Information and Communication Technologies for Development (ICT4D) tools to help those fighting for social justice utilize today’s booming technologies.
