...Message from the Executive Director

Dear Colleagues & Friends of Africa.

It is with great pleasure that we initiated the .Africa project early in 2006. I believe strongly that the .Africa project is the beginning of Africa’s map in the digital inclusion. 

The .Africa name is to serve as Africa's Continental Internet Domain Name. The inspiration comes from all of you. As Africa transforms to a new millennium with economic opportunities for all of us, the .Africa project is one that, not only unites Africa as a continent in the global sphere, but also empowers each individual with their unique identity to contribute to this great nation. Also, as one African diaspora to another, I ask my colleagues to join me in your thirst to fulfill our Continent's most important current mission. To call upon you to assist in Africa's digital inclusion!

God Bless Africa!
