NGO ICT and e-Readiness Self-Assessment Tool

This self-assessment tool is intended to be used by NGOs in Africa to help you check your organisation’s level of maturity in the use of ICTs (Information and Communication Technologies). Our understanding is that the appropriate use of ICTs can increase the efficiency and effectiveness of your NGO, can help bridge the digital divide and can act as a springboard to enable you to do things which would be impossible without this technology.

While this tool has a focus on NGOs in South Africa it is a useful tool for very small community service organisations.
