In Conjunction with eLearning Africa, International Conference on ICT for Development, Education and Training
Programmes that Enable African Participation

At EAST, we believe that involving participants in concrete programmes is the best way to provide them with the practical skills they need to succeed in their work or studies and enter workforce with strong experience and networks. It's about having a lasting, positive impact. This is why we have developed five different programmes that aim to target the over-arching topics of the conference, with the people that could be benefiting from them the most. Would your organisation like to partner with us and support this programme? Please read more on how you can partner with us here.
