DCLI empowers individuals and communities in Africa with the data skills they need to solve health, education, gender inequality and economic growth challenges. Funded by PEPFAR and administered through MCC, DCLI uses a systems-approach to unlock the power of data, advance country leadership in improving lives, and to build the skills that youth need to access opportunities within the global digital economy.

Human capacity is a force for good – and data a powerful lever with which to leap forward.

WHY IT MATTERS?

Transforming data into information is a learned skill, and fundamental to unlocking its power. In a community’s hands their data is a sturdy lever – and a tool for sustainable impact. The DCLI experience has shown that a community empowered to capitalize on information can more effectively define its problems and work toward innovative solutions. Supporting those skills and solutions is fundamental to engaged, sustainable, and equitable economic development.

Data collaboratives are collections of people- local communities, entrepreneurs, and data enthusiasts- at local, national, and regional levels who collaborate to solve problems by using technology and tools to access and use data. In Tanzania and Côte d’Ivoire, DCLI has catalyzed and supports a growing culture of data use to fight HIV/AIDS, improve health, promote gender equality, create jobs, and empower people.

APPROACH

DATA CAN IMPROVE THE WORLD.

DCLI takes a systems-approach – funding projects that create centers of data use, engage locally and inclusively, strengthen data policies and practices, and leverage innovation and partnerships. Combined, these projects catalyze positive change, inspire demand, improve supply, and build capacity in local governments, private companies, and among individual citizens, using data to innovate and improve decision-making.
