Formation of AfCHIX

November 2004

AfCHIX is founded by three-time Internet Society IETF fellow Dorcas Muthoni as a mentorship programme for African women, by African women. AfCHIX is aimed at ensuring, in Muthoni’s words, “that more young women can get training, feel technically up to date, and present themselves for leadership roles.” The Internet Society provides ongoing support of AfCHIX, co-sponsoring a mentorship programme and technical training workshops for women during AfNOG meetings.
