The Cape Digital Foundation is a not-for-profit agency with an overriding passion to make an impact in seeing South Africans’ lives improved as people are enabled to take up and use technology and digital tools, to make their lives easier and more productive.
The Foundation is mandated to initiate and coordinate initiatives that promote the financial inclusion of all people through the uptake of citizen-lead technology. By enabling active citizens who have a voice, future technology and innovations can be shaped around bringing a solution to real-world problems rather than technology prescribing a presumptuous solution from the top down.
We believe that valuable innovation will be born of the Internet-enabled informal sector. It gives people agency and purpose, and has the capacity to build our nation and create unity.
