This description of Ahmed Smiley Ismael's work was prepared when Ahmed Smiley Ismael was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2015.
Ahmed is empowering local people from disadvantaged rural and township communities to help them identify their social challenges and use basic ICT skills to develop grass-root solutions, through a model of co-creation and engagement, where people understand ICT as a platform for overall community development and not only as a skill to enhance employability.
