What we do
The Human Development Innovation Fund (HDIF) is a £30 million competitive challenge fund which provides grants to organisations driving innovative approaches which aim to improve the quality, value-for-money, and sustainability of basic services in education, health and water, sanitation and hygiene.
We stimulate and foster a thriving innovation ecosystem in Tanzania, which includes technical assistance to grantee and capacity building of the Commission for Science and Technology (COSTECH).
We challenge the notion of ‘business as usual’ and encourage organisations to take a risk and do something different. Innovation has the potential to be the catalyst to change in Tanzania. There is a need to increase the quality of services and the quality of outcomes in order for Tanzania to reduce poverty and further its development.
