Ungana-Afrika is currently working on the following projects:
Mpumalanga Community Radio
Since March 2005, Ungana-Afrika has been providing technology
capacity building and support services to five community
radio stations in Mpumalanga province. The stations have
one eRider circulating amongst them, consulting with each
of the stations for a period of a week per cycle. This project
is supported by the Open
Society Foundation of South Africa (OSF).
Ungana-Afrika, with the support of OSISA,
is hosting a selection of free workshops that help leaders of
non-profit organisational communities understand and implement new
models of technology support and capacity-building. To date,
Ungana-Afrika has hosted workshops in four SADC
countries (South Africa, Zambia, Mozambique and Zimbabwe). NGOCC
in Zambia are implementing technology support project utilizing the new
introduced to them by Ungana-Afrika. The two other organisations
in Mozambique and Zimbabwe are at the start-up stage. The next workshop will take place in Swaziland
on 20-21 June 2006.
Capacity Building for Mozambique
In Southern Mozambique, many CBOs and NGOs have established
themselves within the HIV/AIDS sector, offering community-based
services that compliment the medical focus of governmental
hospitals and clinics. The Mozambique Foundation for Community
Development (FDC) and Ungana-Afrika are jointly proposing
the implementation of an ICT Capacity-Building and Support
program for this HIV/AIDS network. We intend to mobilize
local skills and resources by implementing the an eRider
ICT support model.
Student Development Program
Ungana-Afrika is developing a replicable concept for ICT
student development programs that involve ICT students to
provide capacity building and technology support for civil
society organisations, SMEs and smaller public sector offices.
This project is supported by Hivos.
Ungana-Afrika is assisting in the redesign of the global
eRiders Internet portal, eRiders.net.
