  • Capacity of resource centres in technology related themes drawn from local context and addressing technology in lines of how it can be best applied for a Digital Tanzania and its people for Social Impact.
  • Capacity in skills and expertise in knowledge of key rampant technologies such as Internet of Things (IOTs), Artificial Intelligence, Smart Cities, Virtual Realities and many more. These are part and parcel of the future, part and parcel of the 5G technology.
  • Capacity in holding technology (ICT) this agenda in general, being the number one performer and accountability holder in such new ventures of new technologies.
  • We learned that there is a mismatch of relationships between the Private Sector and NGOs. In most cases the Private sector does very well in introducing technological change, it could be of significant impact if the NGOs could amplify those introduced technological changes. One of the key ingredients for the success of any nation in embracing national change is creating an interconnected ecosystem which is in the case of all innovations and technology, most importantly the 5G deployment.
  • There is an urgent need for “Mindset Change”. Majority of the NGOs in the Nation are doing very well according to their key performance indicators. But those indicators as good and impactful as they are they will be more impactful if they are not integrated with technology.
  • With the slow adaptation of interest from the NGO community, there might be an influx of technologies and all associated entities such as the current conversations on Data Governance looking at Security and Privacy and thus the slower the mindset change the more the consequences of delay in adapting to the intentional attributes of what the 4th Industrial revolution brings with it.
