Summary

Through our online platform, Kabissa (our name means absolutely in kiswahili) connects a network of over 1600 nonprofit organizations and 4000 individuals working in Africa for networking and peer learning. Kabissa members work throughout Africa on advocacy, healthcare, education, poverty and more.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

African organizations that provide community services and advocacy on crucial issues, especially small ones at the grassroots level, struggle to take advantage of the Internet and associated technologies. Regular access to the Internet is hard to come by. Because of this, workers in organizations are unable to learn useful tech skills or come up with creative ideas for using technology to support their mission.

How will this project solve this problem?

Kabissa (which means "completely" in Kiswahili) is an online platform run by volunteers, where people and organizations working in Africa maintain their own profile pages, participate in group blogs and learn about relevant technological tools and strategies. The 1,600 African organizations currently in our network are strengthened through their improved presence on the Internet and capacity to use technology, thereby resulting in programs of greater of quality and sustainability.

Potential Long Term Impact

We recently concluded our photo competition where our member organizations were invited to showcase their incredible work and the impact it has had in the communities they serve. This year's winner was a submission by Mozambikes, Limitada. Mozambikes amplifies the developmental impact of bicycles by building and selling high quality low price bicycles. At Kabissa we aim to support the important work of organizations like Mozambikes.
