Abstract: Information and Communications Technology for Development (ICT4D) is faced with the challenge of creating sustainable and innovative success stories which speak to the creation of an inclusive digital society. Initial attempts at ICT4D had limited success. “ICT for Society through Society” implies an approach through which digital inclusion is driven from within a society with the potential to contribute to ICT4D efforts. In this paper, it is argued that code-sprints, when enriched with life skill elements, utilising tertiary education students from development communities as participants, have the potential to create innovative solutions for that community. In short, complying with the ICT for Society through Society mantra.
