While using training, coaching and mentoring to equip them with the required knowledge and skills they need, our regional Academy proposal will be a great center to motivate and empower local citizens to set up their own sustainable development initiatives and getting them actively involved in local development challenges. Imagine a world in which every single person on the planet is given the chance to understand, know and play his or her role in sustainable development. That’s what we’re doing. ~ KFDWB
KFDWB is committed to mobilizing, motivating and connecting local communities, CSOs and NGOs with available development trends and resources (educational materials, ICT tools, information, knowledge and skills to demand for development accountability, inputs, availability, or financial capacity). Moreover, we endeavor to assist these groups in acquiring an adequate technical capacity through capacity building, understanding the development challenges they are facing, publicizing updates on these issues, actively engaging themselves with resolutions, and in the development and gender equality activities of their own societies.
Vision of our organization about Knowledge Development
We believe that to promote sustainable development worldwide, we need to ensure public access to information and that all people acquire the knowledge and skills needed in order to engage in local development solutions and initiatives. We are now connecting more than 1000 members and active volunteers on the ground and the number is still increasing.
We, Knowledge for Development Without Borders (KFDWB), believe that in the 21st century, human sustainable development inevitably requires open access to information, knowledge, communication and technology (ICT) consistent to the global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Therefore, K4DWB supports local, marginalized and underprivileged communities in often forgotten places with fitted ICT skills and tools to deal with their daily challenges on a personal and professional level.
More specifically, we are focused to equip students, graduates, young girls, women, and adults in need with ICT skills adjusted to their needs. These skills can be used to research for job advertisements, free online courses, health issues, legal consulting, women’s rights, climate change topics, local institutional addresses, and many other resources in accordance to the SDGs. Additionally, we help people to set up their own businesses and keep them updated with new technological trends.
