I am very happy to announce that I recently joined the Association for Progressive Communications (APC) as a communications officer for its Communications and Information Policy Program.
It is very exciting to be part of this great network of activists who work on empowering and supporting organisations, social movements and individuals in and through the use of information and communication technologies. A large network of activists, men and women, located all throughout the world.
I really love APC’s motto, which is one of the reasons I applied to be part of this team:
“We don’t get excited about the internet for the internet’s sake.”
My first trip with APC will be to the Mauritius Island, where I will take part in the second African School on Internet Governance between 21-25 November. I will be writing about the event, and sharing news and updates using the #AfriSIG14 hashtag, so stay tuned!
