    Nice to hear from you all about your concern. Is this organisation have funded anyone or developing an organization that is involved in ICT4D. I have workef with IDRC on this type of projects but now AI is the one that is here to stay as part of 4th IR. So the question is why ICT4D is dead becouse 4th IR an AI as the one that most funding is directed towards its. Not to take us back.
