Our learning

A key goal of HDIF is to contribute knowledge and understanding about the complex practice of social innovation in Tanzania that can be used by others. We invite you to learn from the journey we have taken together with our grantees and partners. Our two learning themes focus on the cross-cutting topics of ‘gender’ and ‘ICT for Development’, through the application of the Principles for Digital Development.
