#SwitchItOn

The 3rd Summit on Community Networks in Africa brought together people from around the world to help connect the unconnected.

A Message from Andrew Sullivan “Our potential lies not only in our diversity, but in the power of our community to act as one in service of our mission. Together, our stories of an Internet with people at its heart offer a unifying message for all the world."
