Who we are
African ICT Foundation was established in 2009 to drive policies that use information and communications technology to improve the growth and development of the African economy.
It is an independent not-for-profit making organization whose mission is to formulate, evaluate, and promote ICT and telecoms policies that accelerate innovations and boost productivity to spur growth, create job opportunities, and progress in Africa.
Our inexhaustible focus is at the intersection of technological innovations such as telecommunications, information technology and data, life sciences, trade and globalization, agricultural Biotechnology and clean energy. It is poised towards providing high-quality information analysis, policy pragmatism, and recommendations you can trust.
We shall consciously be making efforts towards holistic involvement in the following activities:
Engage youths in research and educational activities that involves setting the policy agenda on technological innovations, information and communication technology, trade & globalization and clean energy.
Getting private sector support on critical industry issues that affect the growth of Africas’ economy
Working with policymakers to develop and promote policies and ideas, capitalising on the tremendous economic and social benefits ICT provides for Africans.
To professionally invest in the African untapped but sustainable skills and potentials as the key and only hope for the future aspiration in education, technology and economic development of the African nationhood.
“I received the letter appointing me the President of African ICT Foundation with a great deal of excitement and joy. It is with a sense of humility that I accept this appointment, knowing that there abound an array of more knowledgeable and experienced professionals in this field. I feel humbled that I have been considered worthy of this responsibility.
A portfolio such as this no doubt comes with a great deal of responsibility. In the age when ICTs are major indices of economic developments, the continent cannot afford to be sleeping. It’s high time we woke up to the reality facing us at this time. The advancement of the continent vis a vis the economic development lies with the ICT capabilities of her people. With the level of disruptive innovations facing businesses today, there is a need to assist businesses and governments with policies that can deliver the desired economic emancipation of Africa.
With the support of members of the Board, we shall do our level best to add our voice to issues pertaining to ICT development in Africa. With God on our side, we hope to make a difference.
Once more I thank the Board and all Stakeholders for this honor.
We know that together we can make information and communication technology more affordable and reachable for Africans, and We are committed to the development of sustainable skills and opportunities for every Africans everywhere.
