This article explores how the emerging concept of Tech for Good, using technology to solve social and environmental problems, can catalyze social innovation and generate large-scale positive impact.

The article also explores the interconnection between technology and social innovation, highlighting the impact of Tech for Good on social transformation. Concrete initiatives, such as DabaDoc in Morocco, testify to the commitment of local players to using technology for social solutions. In summary, this scientific paper aims to deepen understanding of Tech for Good as a lever for social innovation, exploring its implications for social justice, inclusion, and sustainability.
