Emma Kaye, Executive Director of Cape Digital Foundation says, “Yes we do have the will, and now CDF are in need of funding to pave the way. I invite you to consider joining the Foundation in co-creating Smart Townships in South Africa by becoming a CDF funding partner. I’d like to take you on a tour of our prototype Smart Township initiative in Imizamo Yethu to meet our team and partners on the ground.
Hyper-local content is essential to digital uptake and Smart Township building. Cape Digital Foundation believes that South Africa’s burgeoning townships are our Smart Cities of the future. This belief has shaped the Foundation’s mission to mobilise the provision of reliable, affordable digital infrastructure, along with the digital skills and know-how that will enable township citizens to become Smart Citizens living in Smart Townships – starting in Imizamo Yethu in Hout Bay.
