There is a largely unsung hero in countries devastated by violence – think Afghanistan, Liberia, Rwanda after the genocide, and South Sudan. This hero connects aid workers with resources, helps people start businesses, builds communities, reveals human suffering, and helps former enemies reconcile.

This hero is information and communications technology (ICT): The most trusted industry in the world.
