ABOUT RWIGF

Why a theme on Digital Inclusion for a better Rwandan Society ?

RWIGF forum brings together public and private sector stakeholders along the entire civil society to discuss pertinent issues, opportunities and frameworks needed to be a digital nation. Enhancing digital inclusivity means helping citizens to use ICTs to find the resources and services they need when they need them the most. The aim is to include everyone in society by having access to ICTs and the skills, knowledge and confidence to use them to benefit their everyday lives. To build a digitally inclusive society it is necessary to unpack the three pillars of digital inclusion.
