COMMUNITY INITIATIVES

We collaborate with the country’s change makers to bring about sustained positive impact in Sierra Leone and beyond

At iDT Labs we believe in supporting and engaging with the community we are a part of by lending our technical expertise as well as providing material and logistical support. The two major initiatives which we support are Code4Salone and The Sierra Leone Fintech Association (SL FinTech).

Code for Sierra Leone uses data to give citizens hyper-local and hyper-personal information to make better informed decisions about bread & butter issues. Code for Sierra Leone also builds technology tools to amplify citizen voices.

The Sierra Leone FinTech Association (SL FinTech) is a network of Financial Technology (FinTech) providers and practitioners who recognize the financial sector's need for a FinTech Ecosystem through which common issues and concerns can be discussed and addressed.
