The Overall Impact We Aim to Achieve
We seek to create more sustainable and resilient local communities that are supported by local experts and actively collaborate with local, national, and global actors. This will allow communities to leverage sustainable and responsible technology solutions that adapt to their own local contexts and needs.
We understand our own problems and we get equipped with the right technology to work within our communities.
— Yussuf Said Yussuf, Tanzania Flying Labs
