Kabissa - Space for Change in Africa
managed by T. Eigen
Kabissa is a non-governmental organization founded in 1999 and organized in the United States as a 501(c)3 nonprofit. Our mission is to help African civil society organizations to put Information and Communication Technology (ICT) to work for the benefit of their communities.
Kabissa's current priority is to support the networking, information sharing and ICT peer learning needs of African civil society organizations, which we do by maintaining an online platform at http://www.kabissa.org with a searchable organization directory, community blog and monthly member newsletter. Kabissa also organizes regular Africa Roundtable meetings in local communities (with remote participation via Internet) featuring a lightning round of introductions and guest speakers from member organizations.
Kabissa is different from Facebook and similar social networks because it is owned and governed by a nonprofit organization closely connected with African Civil Society. It is run with African stakeholders in mind - not corporate shareholders. Kabissa represents a vision to empower grassroots organizations in Africa to take control over their own means of communication.
