North South South (NSS) Partnership
The North-South-South programme is a collaboration initiative between University of Gent, Mzumbe University and the University of the Western Cape, supported by VLIR-UOS. The programme is structured around the development of individual and institutional skills and capability development for the application of mobile technology in view of community building within trusted environments.
This digital skills and capacity development initiative is the culmination of several years of collaboration between the University of the Western Cape (UWC), University of Ghent, the Vrije University of Brussel (the SMIT_iMinds programme in particular), and Mzumbe University, Tanzania. The conceptualisation and development of the particular mobile application formed part of the Dynamics of Building a Better Society (DBBS) strategic program (under VLIR-UOS).
