About Ungana-Afrika > History

Ungana-Afrika was born from the reality that those who have access to technology solutions can benefit from the development opportunities they create, while those who don't are further segregated by a growing "Digital Divide." Development organisations that assist Africa's youth and disadvantaged people, or work to improve problematic socio-economic and political systems are especially affected by the Digital Divide. Their work is critical for the development of Africa yet they lack the capacity and support to reap the benefits and opportunities offered by ICTs.


In 2002, OSISA (Open Society Initiative for Southern Africa) and AIESEC (the world's largest student organisation) joined in a partnership to provide information and communication technology support to development organisations in Southern Africa. Initially entitled the "Digital Divide Program," this partnership placed skilled interns within numerous non-profits. Later, in 2003, it became clear that the eRider model of mobile consulting (which was proven successful in other parts of the world) could produce even greater support results. As a result, the vision created by OSISA and AIESEC has now merged with that of the growing eRider community in the form of Ungana-Afrika.

In mid-2004, Ungana-Afrika registered as an independent non-profit organisation in South Africa. Ungana-Afrika still draws upon the strong support of OSISA and AIESEC and is funded primarily by OSISA. See the supporters page for more details.
