The Ministry of ICT and National Guidance takes this opportunity to thank all the individuals, organisations and teams which submitted proposals to the National ICT Initiatives Support Program (NIISP). Three hundred and forty nine proposals were received with ideas in Education, Health, Agriculture, Fintech, among others.
The National ICT Initiatives Support Programme (NIISP) aims to facilitate the creation of a digital ecosystem and marketplace for exposing innovative digital products. The private sector has largely led growth of the ICT sector in Uganda with minimal GoU planning and support. Unfortunately, the market-driven approach has created standalone and closed software applications that have not promoted innovation at a national level.
